Dual-Language Document commands

Word

Category: Dual-Language Documents

If you ever produced a dual-language document (a document containing text side by side in two languages), you may remember how stressful this is. You need to make sure that both the source language and the target language are present side by side and use the correct format for consistency. To make it worse, most customers may require this dual-language format as part of the normal translation rate, while dual-language formatting may take a significant amount of time depending on the complexity of the document.

Dual-Language Document commands in this section will help you pre-format the source document before translation and correctly prepare the document prior to importing it into your CAT tool.

Commands overview

Command Description Usage
Dual-Language Document Assistant Formats selected paragraphs using one of two basic formats: as a dual-column table, or as dual-language text separated by a slash, backslash, line break or paragraph mark. Additionally, text on the left or right side may be highlighted to facilitate translation or for hiding using Hide/Unhide Text command. Use this command to pre-format the source document before manual translation or prior to importing into your CAT tool.
Hide / Unhide Text
This command is the exact copy of Hide / Unhide Text command in the CAT Software section.
Hides text that does not require translation, or unhides all text in the document Use this command:
  • to hide specific parts of a document before importing the document into CAT software. For example, you can do this to translate added paragraphs, or create a bilingual document by duplicating all content and hiding the source language part.
  • to unhide all text in a document after exporting the selectively translated document from your CAT software.
