Transcheck Nov 24, 2012

Dear Jacek,

Please check the TXML file and see if there are any missing or mismatched placeables. You can run TransCheck on Placeables (Edit > Preferences > TransCheck > select Placeables (Apply)) and then use the toolbar button TransCheck; insert and correct the missing or the mismatched placeables.

If the problem persists, please open a fresh copy of the source file in Wordfast Pro and pre-translate using the toolbar button Translate All. Please NEVER use Expand/Shrink Segment after pre-translating.

I hope this helps. Please let me know.

Kind regards,
Yasmin

badly formatted footnote Nov 25, 2012

Dear Jacek,

The problem was rather in the file you sent as the footnote (on page No. 5) is separated from its number with a paragraph mark, and this does not seem familiar. When you correct the source file by just removing the additional paragraph mark in the footnote, the problem is solved.

Rename the old TXML file, open the corrected DOC in WFP, and pre-translate it using the toolbar button Translate All.

So, you should not have such problem with any other properly formatted footnotes.

I hope this helps. Please let me know.

Kind regards,
Yasmin
