    Default Non-translatable Text

    Hi Guys!
    me again, Ive been trying to clean up headers and footers the other time and I finally got into the Non-translatable Tag in Workbench Setting...

    But, Ive been trying to do the opposite with no success. I want to mark some text as non-translatable paragraphs or character styles, so that they can be ignored
    during translation.

    Any idea? Thanks!!

    Hi Ana Laura,

    You need to "paint" the text not to be translated with a specific style for Trados called "tw4winExternal". Then Trados will skip that text to reach the translatable text (with editable format/style) in the file.
    There might be some other ways to do this....

    Good luck!

    Vero, that's a good question... I have that style in a past file, so I just open that file and copy the style and then paint it to the paragraph I want to skip (non-translatable) in the new file. I'll try to see where you can get it...

    Yes, that's what I'm trying to find out... Another option is going to the "non-translatable paragraphs" tab in the setting menu and add the style to be skipped in the file...
