Hi, Some years ago I had noticed that only those variables or cross-reference formats or paragraph autonumbering definitions are imported in a translation memory system (Trados) which are actually used in the document. All those which are not used are not imported. When you edit a variable which is not translated and then import all variable definitions into another file, you might overwrite already translated variable definitions in the other file.
I do not know, if this had changed. And it could be that some translation memory systems handle this issue differently.

I always provide a specific variable file for the translators to use with instructions on importing the variables into the book.

I'm updating an already translated-into-Spanish document with some new screen shots (I don't speak Spanish, so I'm not messing with the text at all). The problem is that the variables, like the Table Continuation, are coming in as English instead of Spanish. How can I get it to read "continuado" instead of "continued," hopefully without messing up my installation too much? Art Campbell art.campb...@gmail.com "...
