Saving a translated document

    Question

  • Support! I have two urgent questions: 1. How do I save my translated document that was done on http://www.windowslivetranslator.com/OfficeTrans online and 2. I see that some sections did not translate at all. How do I get the translator to relook those sections?

    I have tried everything! If I can't save the translation, then I would like to print it and work off the hard copy, but when i right click i get only 1 page to print, and it is an arbitrary page somewhere in the middle of the doc. I am sooooo miserable with this struggle!!

    Please help.

  • No Dave Patrick, this absolutely does not answer the question. you simply sent me a list of forum entries. so, my issue is thus basically NOT solved.

  • You'll have to re-ask in the forum I linked for that product. This is "where is" forum for direction on where best to ask questions.

  • Dave, i am now in the link that you suggested and am trying to repost my question.... but i am stuck in the same problem as on the drop down menu there is NO place relating to my question. I am now really beside myself. I thought i could get an answer from someone....

    I did see one locked forum discussion where it was suggested that i simply cut and paste the translated document...... this is a totally crazy idea as my document is 280 pages long and on the Translator not formatted. it will take days to sort this out. So....is tere a way to save it or not? a simple 'yes' or 'no' will suffice. If 'no', then it really sucks and it should be stated upfront that this Translator is rubbish because one cannot do big documents. Also, it cannot print.....also sucks!

  • Hi Dave - thanks for responding. The link does not help me. I don't even know what on earth an API is or whether I use it or not. There is nothing on there that makes sense to me and i will now assume that my SAVING DOCUMENT issue cannot be solved. I am extremely stressed out by this issue as I am now also stuck with a HUGE document sitting in cyberspace - half translated - and unable to save it, work in it, or print it. Then, pray, may I ask what is the use of 1. Translator and 2. the support forums.

  • Ok, well let's start over. I used your link above to get to the bing translator tool. Is this what you are trying to use?

  • Dve

    1. The translation was diverted from my Word document to this site and that is what i used: whether it is Bing or Bong I dont know as all it says is 'Translator:. This is where it took me from Word "Translate a document" -  http://www.windowslivetranslator.com/OfficeTrans online

    The results of this translation (sitting on Google Chrome internet) have problems:

    1. I cannot save the document at all as there is NO button or indication or right click that can do so. My question is "How do i save the document in Word?

    2. If I cannot save it, how do I print it as right clicking on 'Print' gves me one arbitrary page in the middle of the document to print. And that is all.

    3. Some sections of the document did not translate at all and I need to know how to address that? 

    4. A forum entry suggested that I cut and paste the whole doc into a Word document. This is a completely coocoo idea as I have one massive 280 page document sitting in cyberspace.

    5. I tried this forum - you - and i was diverted to another and then another and then another forum. None of them making sense to me. 

    6. It appears that I am in the wrong forum, but that I can't go anywhere else... a bit like "all dressed up and nowhere to go"...

    And now I am at the end of my tether and about to go sit in a heap and weep. I have spent a solid night (till 4 am) and a day (till 5 pm) trying to sort this out.

    Please help.

  • I'm am not an expert on that tool but I think it is only meant for a user to paste the text to translate in left pane, and result show in right pane. Then it is up to the user to copy the translated text from right pane and paste in final destination. So for you it sounds like microsoft Word. You can also ask in the Word forums here.

  • Dave - I did not mention that BEFORE I tracked down the translator forum, I was referred here by Microsoft Support. Of course I can cut and paste from the target document to a word document. As I said, that was a suggestion in some other forum link. But in the case of a MASSIVE  250,000 word document it is totally not feasible. If you tell me there is NO solution, then so be it. 

    Thanks for trying :(

  • No, I'm not telling you that because I do not know. This is "where is" forum for direction on where best to ask questions. If you started the translation process from within Word then I'd ask over here.
