;   Medical Translation Insight: Checking inline tags with Word and Excel - ForeignExchange Translations

Checking inline tags with Word and Excel

Inline tags are a fact of life for most anybody involved with localizing software. These tags - you know, <>, [], {} - may represent formatting information (such as bold), surround hyperlinks or may be used as other types of markers.

Inline tags can usually be moved around in a sentence to suit the translation. Depending on the file format, some tags can be added or deleted as required.

Medical translators have many ways to work around the (generally) non-translatable tags during their translation work. But things get tricky at the end of the translation. Proofreading a text with tags is challenging and ensuring that all the tags are there and in the right place can be time-consuming and error-prone.

So it was great to see the Gloc247 blog posting hands-on instructions on how to check inline tags in both MS Word and MS Excel documents.

Check out the detailed how-to article and learn how to improve the quality of localized file that contains inline tags.
