Have just installed Freelance 2007 to Vista and opened a TM, translated a Word (2000) doc file and selected Tools > Cleanup and selected the file. Pressing Clean Up gives me the following error message:

"(50104): Folder does not exist, was moved or renamed (C:\Users\Hugh\Documents\My..."

The folder DOES exist, has NOT been moved OR renamed.

Ideas please.

Create a log file Jan 14, 2009

Trados is looking for a log file, where the details of the operation will be recorded.
The missing file or folder requested is the log file or its folder.

To solve, simply create a log file in a folder of your choice (for example in the same location where the TM is, located, but anything will do) and voilà, it will work.

bye
Gianfranco

Did you use Tag Editor? Jan 14, 2009

In case you used Tag Editor, the original file should be in the same folder with the unclean file.
This might be the problem...

A quick way for cleaning word documents Jan 14, 2009

Hello,

Gianfranco and Veroniki advice are correct, but I'd like to tell you that for word documents there is a very fast way for cleaning.

Tools>macro>macro>Twincleanmain.

I use this system with heavy documents or when I am in a hurry.

Bye bye

The macro does not update the TM, though, so be careful Jan 14, 2009

Angio,
All that macro does is removing the Trados-tagged source segments, and the tags from the target segments. It does not update the TM.
So, if you modified anything in the target segments without opening them and saving them, after executing the macro you will not have those changes reflected in the TM.

Right, I normally save also an uncleaned file for updating the TM

PS. Use of the macros is just for emergency, when I am in a hurry and the document give me problems.

The correct way is of course the creation of a log file

Bye bye All

Will try the log file... Jan 15, 2009

Hi

The macro got me out of a sticky mess - thank you all for that one. I can reclean to update the TM when I get the proper Clean Up function to work.

Muito obrigado senhor Gianfranco! I will try your solution, which sounds very convincing. Why, I wonder, doesn't Trados create its own log?

BTW Gianfranco, if you can be in Fortalaza in the first few days of February I'll buy you a beer - or perhaps a best caipirinha would be more fitting?

Thanks folks

Hugh M

Trados logs Jan 15, 2009

Trados can create the log, it just needs to be told where, and with what name.

They do not take default decision, as they could, and issue an appropriate message about it.
For example, they could use the same name of the memory, and create the .log file in the same folder, but they don't do it.

To add to the confusion, the message about the missing log is not very clear, causing puzzlement in many users.

Fortaleza is a bit too far from here. If you come to Sao Paulo, send me a message, I'll be glad to have a drink together.

Thank you Jan 15, 2009

GianFranco,
Many many thanks for this, I was having the same problem and it's been resolved in seconds despite my panic! The issue was to be able to solve the cleaning whilst updating the database.
Grazie!
Emma
