Here's my problem:

I finished translating a formatted document and I've just started proofreading it.
The text is formatted in the following way:

@Z_STYLE70 =
@Z_SEC1 = 2
@Head 1 = source text - translated text
@Z_SEC2 = 2.1
@Head 2 = source text - translated text
source texxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxt - translated texxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxt. source texxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxt - translated texxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxt. source texxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxt - translated texxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxt. source texxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxt - translated texxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxt.
etc...

The texts starting with '@' up until the '=' sign (i.e. @Z_STYLE70 =, @Z_SEC1 =, @Head 1 = and so on...) have been marked with Plus Tools as tw4win external styles and when I was doing the translation they were not appearing in the source text box. (Wordfast just skipped them and only the text next to the = sign appeared as the text to be translated.) The text following these was the source text.

The problem now is that when I open a segment, Wordfast disregards the twin4win style and it wants me to translate it as well (in the proofreading process it asks for the translation of @Z_STYLE70 = , @Z_SEC1 =, etc... instead of skipping them).

I had a similar document with the same formatting and the proofreading went fine then.
Can anyone help?

Thanks,
Szilas

Here's another anomaly...

When I use the "Alt + Up" shortcut, everything is fine (except of course that I can't proofread from bottom to top).
As far as I can tell, the problem manifests only with the "Alt + Down".

got around the problem Apr 11, 2008

Thanks Attila!

I managed to get around the problem though by converting the *.doc format into *.docx (I'm using Word 2007 & Wordfast 5.52) and while a downgrade of both Wordfast and Word would probably solve the problem I don't want to mess around with it until I have finished working on this project.
