Hello, I have:
SDL Trados 2006
Windows XP
Office 2003

I am translating a Word document full of fields and they are kept perfectly in TagEditor, except the XE field.

It turns this field into a Tag, for example: ""

and when I want to edit them all in Word, it crashes down.

Anyone knows how to set TagEditor to take this field as text ("Preface") so I can translate it during my TagEditor workflow and not as a postranslation task?

Thank you very much to all.

Make sure they're written out correctly Dec 19, 2006

The correct format for an index entry is { XE "Preface" } - any other format will cause TagEditor to skip the text inside the entry.

You'll have to make sure they don't have superfluous blank spaces anywhere. This sometimes happens when the Word file is generated by some third-party application such as docuglobe.
