Detailed information about Accept All Revisions and Turn Track Changes Off tool

How Accept All Revisions and Turn Track Changes Off tool can help you in your work

This tool is useful when you need to start translating a document containing revisions. Some CAT tools, e.g. SDL Trados 2007 add-in for Word and Wordfast Classic, do not “like” documents with tracked revisions, while other CAT tools may show tracked revisions during translation unless you accept them in the document before import. Therefore, for most CAT tools, it is recommended to turn Track Changes off and then accept all revisions before importing the document. This tool makes it faster by doing everything in one go, ensuring that there are no tracked revisions left in the document.
