Hello

Who can help me? A client asked me to deliver the translation in Word format (no problem of course ). But I don't understand the following instruction: "Use "a" pages if necessary so that the client is able to slot the translations back into the Trial Bundle."

Regards

Nathalie Vanderstraeten

It's possible that the client wants you to follow the page numbering of the original document, but if all the text doesn't fit, number that extra page 1a, 3a, etc. rather than numbering it 2.

ask the client Sep 4, 2006

I never heard of anything like that. I usually just ask at the source if I can't find an answer to something right away.
The little bit of embarrassment is always worth it in the long run.
Good Luck!

I don't work with translation software, but in my experience as an editor with publishing houses (esp. long ago, when everything was in hard copy), if a change is made that would have required repaginating the entire document, the editor would instead simply insert a page after the page where the change occurred. So, if the change was made on p. 11 (for example), then there would be p. 11, and a new p. 11a (which might only contain a word or two).

And ye shall know. Don't ask us, ask the client.

It is not embarassing to not know. It is embarassing to not know and to never ask the right person.
