Hi there,

This now happened to me a couple of times and I am starting to wonder what is going on. When exporting certain Trados-presegmented docs/rtfs after translation in DVX, I find that the last two or so characters of the source segment are inserted at the end of the target segment. This cannot be seen in the DVX project (where of course I could erase it easily), but only after export when opening the file in MS Word. It does not happen with all Trados files, maybe it applies to files with heavier formatting, but I am not sure about this.

Has anybody experienced something like this as well and if so, what can be done about it except for manual correction?

TIA
Wolfgang

... which to my knowledge should be the most recent one. To be honest, it happens very rarely, only with certain documents. Cannot seem to figure out a regularity in this, except for the fact that it mostly takes ages to get those files imported and exported, although the file size does not exceed 1,5 MB.
