Does a translation editor need to know the language of the source document?

If an editor is editing a translated work, does he need to know the language of the original source document?

The editor is in contact with the client and can therefore ask him questions if something isn’t clear. So does the editor really need any knowledge of the source language?

What about for proofreading? I figure it is even less likely that the proofreader needs to know the language of the source document.

Where should I ask about VBA Digital Certificates and Saving a MS Word document?

I’m not sure if Stack Overflow is the correct site for this type of question or not so I thought I’d check here for a Site-Recommendation before asking.

Example Question

If a MS Word document requires a Digital Certificate to make use of VBA, how would I have the document SaveAs without losing its Digital Certificate?

My document currently makes use of SaveAs on three (3) seperate occasions in it’s lifespan.


Basically, I created some UserForms in MS Word and applied some VBA automation to them. My workplace then applied changes to their policy regarding Macro enabled files to now require a Digital Certificate. If there is no Digital Certificate, Macros are disabled (and cannot be enabled).

I would like to find out some information about, and seek some suggestions about what to do if the document requires saving after the Digital Certificate has been applied as to my understanding the Digital Certificates will be removed from the document once the document is saved.


  • I don’t need to know about how to get a Digital Certificate.
  • I’m looking to find out about how they work with MS Word (As the web seems to refer to excel mostly and I’m not sure if there are any differences.
  • I’m trying to work out if there are any ways to keep my current development with minimal changes to work without losing the Digital Certificate.
  • If required, I’d be looking for some suggestions/advice on an approach to work around the ‘Save’ issue with dropping the Certificate (which I understand may not be an appropriate request for some sites on SE).

Most importantly, discussing this with my work is not an option for me (strange I know).

PDF Annotation sidebar / increase width of document

I recently bought a Surface 3 pro tablet, and really love the ability to annotate pdf documents using the stylus.

Still, for scribbling along my thoughts while reading a document, I would need more space beside the document content.

Is there some tool that I can use to increase the width of the pages within a document (so I would have a sidebar for annotations)?

Making subdirectories for each .tex document (with AUX files) but still access .bib file at higher directory

recently I have become annoyed by the number of auxiliary files that are created when I run LaTeX. I have read some threads about this, and I found out a relatively convenient solution for me is to create separate directories with the name of each paper, so that all the files relative to one paper go into that single folder, instead of having all the files from all the documents in the same folder. I hope that was clear. However, since I need to access my .bib file in every paper, it would be convenient for me if this file could reside one directory up from the individual folders, rather than me having to put a copy of the .bib file into every single folder. Currently I cannot find a way to do that.

Potentially relevant information (or not): I preferable use BibLatex on Biber. My editor is Winedt 10.3. I use Jabref to create the .bib files.

SharePoint Document Center upload error

I have:

  • SharePoint 2010 SP1 instance.
  • Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard

The issue is that any uploads from within office (e.g. Save As or Save and Send) that try to save to SharePoint go through the Upload Center. The upload center fails with the message “Your changes were saved but could not be uploaded because of an error…”

This is consistent for all documents (even .txt) uploaded through Office or SharePoint Workspace. Direct uploads from the site are fine, as is the webdav interface.

There are no errors in the SharePoint logs.

What is the likely cause for this failure?


Further investigation led to the SharePoint server logs, not the client. The error there was…

WebHost failed to process a request.
Sender Information: System.ServiceModel.ServiceHostingEnvironment+HostingManager/41149443

Which, it turns out, is just a wordy way of saying that something terminally messed with your web.config and you should restore the CellStorage service information.

Question: Should I have the super of my building sign a document that he received $600 from me to give to the…

I’m afraid asking him for a receipt will insult him – he’s not American. But its good business to get a receipt. The chances of there being a problem is 0%.

How to restrict sharepoint admin from document libaray access

Traditionally control of files server has been with Windows administrators in my organization and applications are managed by application administrators.

Now we are implementing Sharepoint, and all documents to be migrated to SP.

If i understand correctly , A site collection admin will automatically have access to the document library.

Is it possible that I have a separate admin for document libraries and application.
