Add tags back May 30, 2016

As far as I know, there's no solution other than adding the missing tags in the target translation unit.

There is a good reason why tags need to be transferred May 30, 2016


Not transferring the tags may give unpredictable results, as they contain the layout/formatting information required to generate the target document. This is why tags should always be transferred from source to target and why Studio checks that this has been done properly.

You did not mention which file format is concerned. For Word, SDL has introduced a new filetype labelled "Microsoft Word 2007-2016", which has an option to allow the target file to be generated even in the presence of tag errors. You can choose what happens if tags are missing or wrong, for example to write the source text into the target document for the concerned segments.

You'll find this option in "File - Options - File Types - Microsoft Word 2007-2016 - When an issue with inline tags is found".
