Resource: how to update a table of contents automatically in Word

For those not 'in the know', here's a quick tip for updating a table of contents automagically in Word when having completed a translation in a CAT tool or by over-typing:

Right-click the table, click 'Update field' and OK the dialogue box if one appears. That's it!

Saves a lot of time trying to over-type and format the TOC.
