Dear All

I am translating ttx files with Tag Editor of SDL Trados 2006, from English into Chinese.
During the translation, I encountered two problems:
1. When I am about to move to next sentence, the system pops up a warning window, saying that "At least one tag is missing in the target segment, Would you like to continue?". After clicking Yes, I can continue the translation.
2. Sometime, the font in the target segment changes, some characters are crushed/ into each other or overlapped. I am not sure if it is related to the previous problem.

I have browsed the SDL Trados Support forum, and have not found the answer yet.
Any one has a clue?

Hi,

As far as the warning is concerned, it informs that you must place a tag. This can contain information about formatting, etc. Try placing the missing tag in the target text.

Regards,

Òscar

You should fix tags before continuing. Otherwise there will be problems.


2. Sometime, the font in the target segment changes, some characters are crushed/ into each other or overlapped. I am not sure if it is related to the previous problem.


I found that tags can introduce problems with fonts. Try a workaround by selecting text between tags and start typing.

Hope this helps.


Piotr

Copy tag / or bring in placeable Jan 31, 2007

When you see the message:
"At least one tag is missing in the target segment, Would you like to continue?"
you should click No. It is important that no tags are missing.

You may be able to copy and paste the missing tag from the source segment, or bring it in as a placeable.

Problems solved Feb 1, 2007

Dear All

The first problem is solved by coping the tag from the source segment, but I still have no luck on second problem.


The second problem is solved by inputing English comma, instead of Chinese comma, which takes two bytes space.

What a simple and silly solution.
