Hi you all,

I was referred to this forum with my above question as this forum is monitored by XTM people.

I translated into the XTM editor. All worked just dandy but when it was time to proofread my own translation, I found tons of red {sp} tags in my text but I didn't type them in and they are also not in the source file.


I can remove them manually but it is a lot of work.

Is there a way to get rid of them at all without changing anything else in the translation or the source text?

What happens if I ignore them an leave them in the text? Does that sabotage my translation?
