Not using Trados, while working on editing an uncleaned copy for the target text in a MS Word file, Copy and Paste doesn't work. It works within the file, but when copying words and pasting them into a website search box, it's not working. For the English original text, the function works for pasting into a web search box, but the target texts don't work for Paste.
How can I work it out?
Thanks.

AFAIK you cannot copy hidden text outside Word. If you dont need the cleaned version anyway, as it seems, you can change (Edit/Replace) the hidden text into e.g. different color - and copy it as usual.

Hello,

Thanks for the information. Not knowing about Trados, the original text must act as Hidden text.

How do I open the segment?
I changed the color of the original English text and pasted into a website search box. It still didn't get copied.
