Problem with this Optional Hyphen word
Thread poster: Celer

We are having problem with this word (Optional Hyphen) because Trados doesn't show it in Editor.

When we finish the job and Trados generates target translations, this word (optional hyphen) doesn't appear in the documents.
is there some way or this word label or other way what for it appears.

Thanks you so much.

- the target DOCX document created does indeed show the optional hyphens

I don't quite understand the problem…

Where do you see the "word (Optional Hyphen)"?
Also what's the format of the original file, DOC, HTML?
