My company gets regular orders on Network Management files
I recently received Web Pages and inspite of specifying that I need the Japanese files to look and feel like the English Formatting, I just seem to receive plain files, with none of the original Webpage elements.
I have worked with 5 different translators on this and they all seem to be sending me the same non formatted, translated versions saved in HTML formats
I believed working on Tag Editor would eliminate this issue.
Could you please advise what I should do or what I should ask for?
I seem to be running into a wall and the client is nothing short of furious

Thread moved to the Software applications forum Mar 17, 2009

As I understand, your question is not specifically about how to handle this issue using TagEditor, therefore I moved it to the Software applications forum [Discussions related to any software applications and utilities not included in other forums (DTP, PDF, audio, video, graphics, etc.)]
Kind regards,
Attila

The issue is not clear. Try to re-phrase it! Mar 17, 2009

Whether tags in the file you send were colored (formatted)?
Did you send them an .html file or, an .rtf file?
Next,
Did your translators used Unicode font, or which font you asked them to use?
Do they have knowledge of handling tags?
Did your translators save files as ‘Plain text’?
