I'm working on my document in Word, translating it sentence by sentence. Whenever I jump to a new segment, Word places my cursor where I have to type at the very top of the screen, thus hiding the original sentence which I have to translate. I always have to scroll up a bit to be able to see it.
Very annoying and sure to work-around-able. Does anyone know how?
Thanks in advance,
Niels

Have you tried View -> Normal? That may work.
Best,

Ando Tools Jan 15, 2008

Hello Niels,

Try Ando Tools (freeware) which offers some enhancements for Trados in Word. You can not only center source and target segment in the middle of the screen, but also go back to the previous segment if needed. I personally find these enhancements very useful. Here's an older topic in which Ando Tools was mentioned, including the download link: http://www.proz.com/post/576366
Please note center view only works when using the keyboard shortcuts to advance to the next segment, not when clicking the Trados toolbar buttons.

HTH,
Marion
