Hidden Characters In Different CAT Tools

In this post, we will show how to enable hidden characters in the mainstream CAT tools

A month ago we talked about hidden characters in Word. Since it is useful to see them when working on texts, it makes sense to know how to toggle them in the mainstream CAT tools.

 

Trados Studio

When in Editor mode, select Home tab on the ribbon and press this button:

trados_studio_hidden_characters

There is no special shortcut for enabling/disabling hidden characters, but you can set it yourself in the Trados Studio settings.

 

memoQ

In memoQ, showing hidden characters is somewhat trickier:

Select memoQ (on the ribbon) > Options > OptionsOptions dialog box appears. On the left pane, select Appearance. Then, select Show non-printing characters on the right:

memoq_hidden_characters

 

Xliff Editor

In Xliff Editor, there is a toggle similar to the one in Word and Trados Studio:

xliff_editor_hidden_characters

 

TagEditor

The same in TagEditor (from Trados 2007 bundle):

tageditor_hidden_characters

 

Transit NXT

In Transit NXT, select View tab on the ribbon, then set the checkbox Special characters:

transit_nxt_hidden_characters

 

Wordfast Pro

The toggle enabling hidden characters in Wordfast is similar to the one in TagEditor, Word and Xliff Editor:

wordfast_hidden_characters

 

Memsource

The same button is used in the Memsource Editor:

memsource_hidden_characters
