I'm trying to translate 64 powerpoint sildes. Let's put aside sometimes wordfast stops and shuts.
I've reached the end of the slides, but most slides haven't been translated. I mean, texts within the frame (which are the most past in powerpoint sildes) haven't been translated.
May I do something (for instance in PB), or do I have to translate them "manually" ?

Use Werecat Apr 10, 2008

I find it's better to use Werecat (type it in on Google and follow the simple instructions) for Powerpoint and text boxes with Wordfast.

Good luck!

Werecat is a blessing. If you don't have Trados TE or SDLX.

Haven't been able to get red Werecat to work on Office 2007. Anyone manage to do so? David, any new releases in the works?

Many thanks, John! I have just updated Werecat and I hope Red Werecat will now work with PowerPoint 2007. It's a quick fix, as I'm rather busy, so I have done just quick testing. If you observe any further problems, let me know (in private, so we don't hijack this Wordfast forum).
