Hello,

a new problem has occured while converting an RTF into MIF. After conversion, what used to be a tag in RTF (Page 14, Page 26, etc.) appears still in English.

The problem is, when i try to delete the former tag, for instance, "arrow - Page 15" in the MIF document, the selected text includes the arrow and deletes everything (arrow - Page 15).

Also, when i try to make a search in "find/change" the word "Page" is not recognised.

Summing up, how can i handle this to modify the unavailable text (Page 15). Is there an automatic method to modify all these lables in the MIF doc?

Thanks a lott!

Maria

Should be possible with editor Jan 7, 2005

MIF is a text file. Load it into an editor (UltraEdit) and do whatever you want.

Have you translated ancillary.rtf file? Jan 8, 2005

This is probably cross-reference. Cross-reference formats are defined in ancillary.rtf file. You have to translate this file and convert the RTF again - S-Tagger will automatically get the translation from ancillary.rtf

HTH,

Please summarize conclusion to this problem Nov 21, 2005

Hello Maria:

My client is having the same or a similar problem you're describing with a manual I translated last week. I have translated many framemaker manuals before and I had never heard about this issue. I'm trying to help them, but I can't think of anything that I may have done wrong. Yes, I did translate the ancillary.rtf file and everything looks correct in the clean version of the file. Can you tell us how you ended up fixing this problem so that I can forward it to my client?

Thanks!
