I am new to using SDLX. Does anyone know how to get rid of Japanese furigana on a Word (or other document) in order to facilitate its correct conversion? I have a client who only sends the document with furigana in Word format for translating. They only publish the source doc with furigana because it is a widely read item, and some readers ostensibly need furigana to read it.

What's the problem? Dec 31, 2004

What happens when you use the Project Wizard to generate itd files? Do the furigana characters interfere with the process? Do they get extracted out? Do they stay there and just bother you because you don't need them?

Esther, curious and eager to help

well, Dec 31, 2004

When I convert the file to itd, the furigana is shown in the source (left) side, as though it were the real text, and the kanji, which are obviously what I really want there, are missing, replaced by red vertical lines. In essence, it seems to be weeding out the kanji instead of weeding out the furigana.

UTF-8 Dec 31, 2004

Well, it's a real problem. The only thing I can think of is: did you check the box for UTF-8 (on the right) when selecting Japanese as the source language?

You could also try to see what happens with a small file where all the furigana is removed. Will you get only red lines?

Good luck!

Esther

Still trying different things Dec 31, 2004

I still haven't figured it out. The best thing is if my client would just make the doc sans furgiana, but I'll figure something out. Thanks for your help. You have probably put me on the path toward fixing this.
