Hoello
I've a .docx file and the customer asked me to translate only non highlighted text.
Does anybody know how to filter-out highlighted segments.

Thanks

TransTools Feb 23, 2016

Hi Giovanni,

I use TransTools:

"Translator Tools© (aka TransTools) is a collection of tools for Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Visio, Autodesk AutoCAD and other programs. These tools will help you at every step of the translation process – during preparation of documents for translation, in the course of translation, and during QA and post-formatting."
http://www.translatortools.net/.

See here how to hide/unhide text: http://www.translatortools.net/word-hideunhide.html

It's a great tool and I hope it helps

Catarina

How to hide texts in Word documents Feb 24, 2016

Giovanni, in addition to TransTools, which I have already downloaded and wish to use soon, there is a manual way of hiding texts. In Word 2007 you can hide texts as follows: Select the portion of text you wish to hide. Then, click on the little arrow on the bottom right corner of the first menu, where you see "font". Then check the last box. Voilá! Your selected text will be hidden. You can use it with Studio. Studio will jump these hidden portions. When finishing and producing the "clean" document, you can reverse the process to show the hidden text. There are shortcuts to do this, but I don't remember now.

You can see this method by watching this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1pKoAb2XoA

Dear Catarina, thank you for sharing this idea. Before I will have time to try your solution, could you please tell me, whether TransToll is capable of batch processing the requested task as well? Thanks!

No batch processing (at least not for hiding/unhiding) Feb 24, 2016

Moin Matthias,

Unfortunately, TransTools offers no batch processing, at least not for hiding/unhiding highlighted text. Still, it is a very useful piece of software, highly recommended.

Kind regards,
Erik

Again in word Feb 24, 2016

You can also hide all non-highlighted text via Ctrl+H, Find-More-Format-Highlighted, then Replace-More-Format-Font-Hide.

Then open file in Studio, translate, export and Ctrl+A, right-click, Show.
