Hi all,

I would like to know how I can keep the colours of the original text when cleaning the translated document up. I have tried with the LeaveColors feature of the Pandora’s Box, but the result isn’t what I expect. With that feature the cleaned-up text takes the colour that I set for the translated text, not the one of the original text.

My Wordfast version is 5.91i .

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thank you!

Maria

What do you mean by "the colour you set for the translated text"? Do you mean you have defined custom colors for 100%, fuzzy and unknown in Setup > General? If so, it makes sense the custom colors you have defined stick after clean-up.
LeaveColors means that: if the source text is red, the translation you enter in the target segment will be red and Wordfast won't change it at clean-up time.

Yes, now it works Jun 20, 2012

It is exactly what I meant, Dominique. I have defined no colours for 100%, fuzzy and unknown segments, and now it works.

Many thanks,

Maria
