I want to translate some powerpoint files with Trados, but I get the message \"the presentation contains unavailable fonts\" \"unable to continue\".

What can I do about this?

Thanks for your kind help.

I had that same problem! Go to the \"Format\" Menu and change the fonts the program does not recognize (they are displayed with a ? next to them)



Good luck!

It's easy, but ... Feb 12, 2003

I asked this question several months ago.

Go to Tools and click on Replace fonts.

It is that easy. However, (from my first hand experience) tell your client about this change of fonts. I did not do it once (the first time I used Trados 5.5 that supports Powerpoint), and when I delivered the project, the client was not happy because of this change. So there were lots of hours spent to fix the fonts. It would have been faster for me (only in this particular case) to have the material translated without Trados. Since then, I have NEVER had any other problems with Trados and Powerpoint, it just works great.

Thanks for your replies. But I still have the same problem. The only fonts I have on the documents are Arial and Times New Roman. No font appears with a question mark and I still get the same message. Any clue?

Alternatively, get the fonts Feb 12, 2003

If your customer needs special fonts, they could provide them to you...

As nothing seems to work, I will get in touch with my customer and ask him to provide me the fonts.

Thanks all for your help.

What about Asian fonts? Feb 13, 2003

By any chance, did you get a message when you open the file indicating that the presentations contains foreign fonts? These fonts are sometimes hidden and are inserted when the presentation was produced in a PC with the International setting to Asia. In this case, I suggest downloading the Mincho font-set and installing it in your PC.
