Hy everybody !
I have some troubles with WORD files !

The WORD files I received were protected and the customer gave us possibilty only to write the translation texts within FIELDS.

In order to work with TRADOS (I use to work on tageditor)
I took out the protection and could work the file without troubles.
TM is ok and I can work till to the end of the file.

But when I clean up the Tageditor file
Trados It's not able to overwrite the old text in the FIELDS of the file prepared by the customer.

I usually save the tageditor files as bilingual .ttx
but even if I try to save IT in target .ttx
It goes to error and closes the file.

Please help me !

Save as RTF Sep 5, 2008

Hello,

maybe you can save the files as rtf. Someimes it is possible to remove the password from the document protection. After this it is maybe possible to deactivete the document protection.

Maybe you should use an older Word version, because the old RTF file format does not support password.

Another possibility is to use an Password removing tool.

Regards

Hans

NO TROUBLES WITH PROTECTION BUT WITH TEXT-FIELDS ! Sep 5, 2008

protection is not a problem anymore
now the problem is that
I find in this document only text-fields
that TRADOS refuses to fill in or overwrite
both if I work with TagEditor or directly on TRADOS/WORD
