Modern word processing at typing stations generates records including codes for formatting and other word processing functions which may not be acted upon if the data is transmitted character for character. Prior to such transmission the record is transcribed locally in a read to record loop in which such characters are entirely deleted or in which a special symbol is substituted for all such characters. This local copy is visually reviewed for unacceptable factors prior to any such transmission. When a special character is inserted, the same translation can be transmitted so that the received copy also shows where codes have been deleted.
