Hi everyone -

Is there anyone who can tell me if this is possible, and how to do it? I am supposed to translate only a portion of the doc, and the formatting is complex so I would rather not cut and paste into a new document, which is the first solution that springs to mind.

Thanks!

Joy

Use the "Hidden" format Apr 16, 2010

Dear Joy,

You can use the "Hidden" format (Font > Hidden). Any text formatted as "Hidden" in the original doc will not be imported to Wordfast Pro.

After you finish the translation and "Save Translated File", you can mark all the text as un-hidden again before delivering.


I hope this helps.
