TRADOS Translate inline

Translating segments that contain inline codes

The source files contain numerous XML codes that must be handled correctly. Some shall be translated, and some not.

Most of the codes appear as two purple rectangles pointing at each other. The code type is identified with text written inside the rectangle. Between the rectangles you may or may not find text.

Inline codes are used in the segment sentences to enhance text. Codes used to make text bold, italic or underlined are not shown, but other text enhancement codes are visible. Such codes include:

  • uicontrol
  • codeph

...and others.

The inline codes can be provided alone in a segment, or as a part of a sentence.


  1. Observe the segment in the source text.

    If the segment contains an inline code, it may look like this:

  2. If the source segment contains inline code(s), use Ctrl-Ins and copy the entire text from the source language to the target language.

    You can also position the cursor in the source segment, right-click and select Copy source to target on the short-cut menu.

  3. Translate the segment while keeping the inline code in the new segment.
  4. You must translate the information inside the inline code.
  5. When the segment has been translated - still with the inline code in its correct position - press Ctrl-Enter to verify and save the translation.
