Hi there!

I am wondering whether there is any way to mark up non-translatable text in an Excel file so it will not be imported into TagEditor. Any advice other than copying the columns to be translated into a separate file?


BTW: Using Trados 6.5 Freelance

Hide the columns Feb 13, 2008

Hi Wolfgang,

Try to hide the columns that you do not want to translate in Excel before importing the file into TagEditor.

I'm not sure if this works with Trados 6.5 - it does with SDL Trados 2007.

Best regards,
