Hello,

I wanted to translate an Excel file with Tageditor, but it only shows the titles of the sheets. There is no error message, just no text, other than the sheet titles.

I'm using SDL Trados freelance 7 and the file contains macro's.

Any ideas?

Kind regards,
Monique

pls copy text from the original excel file to a new one: translate it using the tageditor. save the ttx file and then "save target as" to the new file: from it, copy text to the original file.

it's called file preparation in the appropriate pdf manual I think.

good luck,
pavel

the sheets are protected Nov 15, 2007

When I try to copy sheets or save the file in xml format I get the message that the sheets are protected with a password. This is probably also why Tageditor won't show the text.

It was only 1100 words so I've made the translation in Excel.

At least now I know what to look for if this ever happens again, and hopefully it will also help others.

Thanks for your help.

Kind regards,
Monique
