I have to translate a file which is full of HTML tags. The problem is, I have to leave the original text following the translation. Here's an example:

Code:
"chunk_1[english]"   "text
text
text
"
"chunk_2[english]" "text text text"

"chunk_3[english]" "text

text"




..has to become...


Code:
"chunk_1"   "translated text
translated text
translated text
"
"chunk_1[english]" "text
text
text
"
"chunk_2" "translated text translated text translated text"
"chunk_2[english]" "text text text"

"chunk_3" "translated text

translated text"

"chunk_3[english]" "text

text"



In other words, the total number of lines doubles, the translated chunk is followed by the English one - the translated chunk shouldn't have the '[english]' part.

I'd greatly appreciate if someone could advise me on what would be the easiest way to accomplish this. Tag protection is preferable. If possible, I would be happy if I could use the Word spelling functionality (like in SDLX) as well.

Thanks in advance,

Nicholas
