When I try to use T-Window for Power Point on a Translation I have, I start by doing an \"Open-Get\" and it gives me the error \"Unable to continue. This presentation contains unavailable fonts.\" Does anybody have any idea of how I can get past this error message without extracting the text, translating it, then putting it into Power Point by hand? I looked at my Windows Fonts directory and indeed I do not have all of the fonts that Power Point says it is using however I can\'t find where in the slides the fonts that I am missing are. I have clicked on every text box and every one is using a font that I have. Any ideas of how to make this error message disappear either through fixing Power Point so it doesn\'t think that I am using these fonts which I don\'t have, or through Trados so that it gets over this problem and actually lets me translate.



Thanks,

Monika

replace the fonts Dec 2, 2002

Monika



At the tool bar you\'ll find a drop-down menu with the available fonts in your system. Those fonts marked with a ? are not available in your system. Replace them with some fonts not previously used on your document (e.g. Times will be replaced by Verdana) and proceed with the font changes. When you deliver the project inform your client about the substitution, indicating exactly all the font names substituted.



Also, you can ask your client to deliver the missing fonts.



Regards,

Clarisa Moraña
