Never overlook anything when translating Microsoft Office documents using CAT tools.
Forget-me-not analyzes the content inside several Microsoft Office documents and produces reports that give you a very clear idea how to translate the document completely without overlooking anything and help you plan the additional work required for DTP and manual translation. It analyzes documents and checks which content present in the documents cannot be imported by your CAT tool at all or can be imported depending on import settings, and which content requires attention before or after translation in CAT tool.
Summary list of content in analyzed documents with important information about content that requires attention during translation with CAT tools and during pre/post-formatting
- Understand what content will not be imported into the CAT tool by default and how to change import settings of your CAT tool in order to import that content.
- Learn which content cannot be imported by your CAT tool, and how you can translate this content manually.

Import documents into your CAT tool using correct settingsMicrosoft Office documents are complex documents which contain elements that are not always imported by your CAT tool. So, it is critical to configure your CAT tool correctly in order to import all the text you need to translate. Forget-me-not will tell you if you need to change the default import settings to import specific content.
