use Tag Editor or save as .doc May 29, 2008

Hi, Javiera.
If the problem persists, try suggestion mentioned in (this thread for Trados 2007.
It might help, if not, try to save .rtf file as .doc (F12 - Save As) and translate this document. Or even better - open the document in question via Tag Editor, translate it and use the option Save Target As to save it as the original .rtf file.

Hope it helps, though I have never encountered such a problem (I am mostly translating using Tag Editor).
