Does anyone happen to know whether and how it can be done in Trados?

Translation in Word Oct 19, 2005


Publisher allows to edit text in Word direkt from Publisher.
Then you can translate in Word with Trados, but you should clean up the text before going back to Publisher.

Question: do you have Publisher yourself? Oct 19, 2005

Well, not directly, I think. If you don't have Publisher, you can't do much with the file. If you do have Publisher, and you don't have any luck with Hans' suggestion, try saving the file as earlier versions of Publisher. AFAIK Publisher 97 files can be edited directly in a text editor, so perhaps that's your solution.
