Sunshine,

"Trance" as a noun is a hypnotic state, often attributed to magic or otherwise supernatural power.  "Tranced" as a participle means "put into a trance".  This usage is so uncommon, at least in the United States, that my spell checker wants to call it incorrect, but it isn't.  However, I am much more familiar with "entranced" in such a context.

To suggest a paraphrase:

She's been put into a trance.  We should try to bring her out of it.

Incidentally, may I ask where you are from?
