Hi there -

I just translated a Word document in Wordfast Pro 3.2. When I click Save Translated File, I get a segmented bilingual document. I didn't do anything but Save Translated File, so I know I didn't tell it to create this file format. I can't figure out how to get my normal clean Wordfast Pro translation. Can anyone help?

Thanks!
Chiara

Files? Jun 25, 2013

Hi Chiara,

Would you mind sending me your original source and TXML file privately at kmarrero@wordfast.com ?

Sincerely,

Kristyna

Change Styles Jun 25, 2013

Hi Chiara,

You need to delete the TW4WinMark Style from your original source doc.

To do that, open the file in MS Word. On the Home tab, all the way to the right, you will see 'Change Styles.' Click the little arrow that appears underneath it (or click Atl + Ctrl + Shift + S) to see a drop down menu with a list of styles. Scroll down to 'TW4WinMark.' Right click on it and delete it. Then save that Word doc and reopen it in WFP. Translate it and save translated file as usual. The result should be a non-segmented translated file.

Hope this helps,

Kristyna
