I'm tasked with translating a text that has custom markup which uses different highlight colors and is partly hidden with no simple rules as to what is hidden and what is not. I need to preserve the markup as is, including the hidden parts, and therefore cannot simply hide and then unhide it all. How can I quickly prepare the document for translation, excluding the markup?

Change the markup, then restore? Jan 13, 2020

Could you change the markup, using Word's Find & Replace function, to something that the CAT tool can work with, then change it back to the original markup after translation?

Resolved: invalid Jan 13, 2020

I declare this resolved as it turns out that there is no actual hidden text in the markup despite the grey check mark in the Font window that suggested otherwise. No hidden text can be found using the Search & Replace window.
