Hi! I'm new to Trados and I have a problem I couldn't find a solution for. I am actually not even sure how to look for it. Here it goes: I'm doing translations for dubbing and I have lots of time codes in my documents. The problem is that Trados automatically remove the first 0 from all tcs. So, let's say that I have time code 01:20:35 in source - it will appear as 1:20:35 in target and it will act as 100% match so it will skip it in translation which means that I have to go through each of this codes and change them manually which takes me bunch of time. I understand the reasoning behind it as it starts with 0, so I suppose that the program recognise it as number and that 0 seems unnecessary, but I need it. Anyone know how to set so it wouldn't do that? Thanks a lot :)
These are the auto-localization/auto-substitution settings. To change them, follow the steps explained here.
Hi Ela Varošanec
Can you tell me what the file format is that you are translating? If it's a subtitle file you probably need to make sure you are handling the file so you don't have to deal with the time codes at all.
Thank you so much for you help. I guessed the solution was simple, I just didn't know how to find it. I worked 100%
