Dear fellow WF users,

I wonder if you can help me with these 2 questions regarding WF Pro.

1. Is there a way to leave out placeable tags (ie {ut1}, {ut2} etc.) in TM?
2. Can you define untranslatable attributes similar to WFC (ie use highlight gray 25% etc.)?

I am trying out the Pro version and have found my TM full of these tags and (unwanted) numbers and address.

Many thanks
R.

Unwanted tags Sep 17, 2009

I am also relatively new to WF Pro.

What about just ignoring the tags and getting on with the translation?
However, in this case the final product should subsequently be checked for layout.

Don't have a problem with tags when translating... Sep 17, 2009

I am trying to see if there is a way in WFP to prevent TM from memorising these tags.

Remove tags with search/replace Sep 18, 2009

If your main concern is cleaning the tags from the TM, you could always try opening the TM manually and performing a search/replace to remove the tags. Make sure that Wordfast Pro is not using the TM first; otherwise, the text file will be locked and you will be unable to modify it. Once unlocked, make a backup copy, open it in Word, search for the string &t^$; and replace it with nothing. Look the file over to make sure that you have achieved the desired effect. If not, then undo the replace and refine the search string. Once you have a clean TM, simply save it.
