Hi everybody,
I'm trying to read my translation without the source text but at the same time I don't want to clean-up the document yet. I looked in the manuel to see how I can do that but I didn't find any reference to this; unless I missed some points!
I remember in Trados, there was an icon that enabled hiding the source text. Is there such an option in Wordfast?:

Thanks in advance.

Crtl + comma Jun 24, 2008

Is the toggle which should do what you want. Press it once and it brings up the paragraph codes, then press it again to hide all codes and the source text. You can also do it via Tools Options View (untick hidden text), but Control comma is quicker!

HTH

I did that but , though I can see the source again, the text is full of strange characters.

Just press Alt down Jun 24, 2008

Hi Lila,

Just press Alt down as though you were going to edit the section and both the source and target texts will return as before. Then Alt end, of course, if you don't want to edit just then.
