When attempting to clean up a Word file, I receive the message '-2147417851 The server threw an exception'.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I am using Word 2003 and Trados 6.5 Freelance.

Steve

Yes, that sometimes happens with certain files. Just save the file as RTF and try cleaning that. Let us know if it worked for you - there are other things you can try if it doesn't.

Cleanup error Apr 3, 2009

Hi Steve,

If you have already uploaded the translation into the TM, you can run the tw4winClean.Main macro. In Word 2003, go to Tools > Macro > Macros, search tw4winClean.Main and press Run. This will clean up the file but will not update the TM.

I hope this helps you.

Oscar

Fixing the "server threw an exception 2147417851" problem? May 29, 2009

I have had this message repeatedly from the TM now and have circumvented it by saving files as RTF and then cleaning them. But can anyone tell me how to fix the problem permanently?

Thanks

To get rid of this problem for good, use TagEditor to translate your Word documents (requires Trados 7.1 or higher.)
