This is really bad Dec 7, 2008

But even worser is what you did not write...
Your Trados version? Document type? What did you do before it happened?

I don't think these really mattered Dec 7, 2008

I don't think I failed to give you any useful information.
I worked on Word 2003-xp compatible (.doc) (made from PDF images via Abbyy Fine Reader), latest version Tradost SDL translation suite.
I translated some tables, clicked on Translate to Fuzzy, and that was it.
I've been working with trados for years and I've never seen it happened.
I converted the PDF from Abbyy Fine Reader again, and I'll try again with TagEditor.

That's it Dec 7, 2008

You wrote "Trados just highlights the code". What kind of code dou you mean?
And when you skip the place, does Trados start again?
Using Tageditor is always a good solution.

May I draw your attention to the notes provided when posting a new topic in this forum:


When asking for help, make sure that you:
# indicate the file format(s) involved
# specify each software package that is relevant to your posting, identifying the version with the *full* version number
# describe the step(s) or process(es) which have triggered the problem.
This will help others to help you.

Your compliance with these requests is appreciated, as it helps others who contribute to help.

Trados support says this.. Dec 8, 2008

I have also encountered this problem and following Option 2 (deleting the bookmarks manually) below solved the issue for me. Hope it helps you!

Resolution
To resolve this problem, you have two options:
1. Run the Fix document command from the Trados menu in Microsoft Word.
2. You can also delete these bookmarks following the steps below:

1. From the Insert menu (Microsoft Word), choose Bookmarks.
2. In the bookmark list, click on tw4winFrom and/or tw4winUpto.
3. Click Delete.
4. Close the Bookmarks dialog box.

Note: Option 2 is the same as option 1. The only difference between them is that option 1 automates the manual steps in option 2 by means of the Fix document command.
