Hi everyone!

Im new in using Tag Editor, better to say it's the first time now I have to work with an ".ini" file.
The document I have to translate is in Word and I have MS Word 2003 and my Trados version is 7.5.
The problem is that I can not insert any tags in the target text, because my options "Insert tags" or "Insert entities" are missing.

I do not know what to do. Can anyone help me?

Thank you very much in advance!

hi maria veronica,

go to tools > options > protection, uncheck "protect tags" and "protect document"

be very careful with the tags as you can delete/change them accidentally

good luck,
pavel

Problem solved, many thanks Feb 1, 2008

Hello Pavel,

Thank you very much for your prompt response.
The problem is now solved.
I forgot to mention my other problem.
When I save the translation in Word, it only saved the target, the clean document.
What can I do to generate the unclean document?

Thanks again everyone!

saving Feb 2, 2008

there are three save commands:

1. save (ctrl-S) (ttx: bilingual, i.e. "unclean")
2. save bilingual as... (ttx, bif, "unclean")
3. save target as... (doc, dot, "clean")

this is really basic stuff found in your user documentation

--

but if you mean an "unclean" doc then I'd use the following:

a. open your ttx in tageditor, ctrl-A (select all), ctrl-C (copy)
b. start word, ctrl-V (paste), ctrl-S (save)

This is what i did in the end Feb 2, 2008

Hello Pavel,

Thanks for your help!
I was not sure about this and just wanted to make sure there are no other ways to do it.
I am glad to see that I did it just the way it has to be done, including your last recommendation.
Thanks again ans have a nice week-end!

BR,
Veronica Constantinescu
