Error 33201 The mark for ending a translation unit is missing or damaged.

I have Trados 5.0, Windows 2000 Pro and Office 2000 Pro.

This is the second time I cannot close a segment. It has happened with two different word files and two different TMs.

Both times the error occurred with the third or fourth segment.

I can close Word and save changes but next time I open it, same segment is open and I cannot go on.

Any ideas?

Thanks!
Andrea

But if it were error 3.3.2.1..0 (instead of 33201), it would be a warning that your computer is about to explode!

Oh well, sorry, too late here and making fun of anything. Hope you can solve it, Andrea.

Abrazos,

Rb

Add a paragraph mark at the end of the sentence May 23, 2004

Hi Andrea,
Marijke already answered the question - I just wanted to add that this error often occurs if a segment is immediately followed by a manual break (section break or page break). Adding a paragraph mark at the end of the sentence should resolve it.

HTH, Ralf

next May 23, 2004

Andrea, start your translation from next unit; Defective unit trasnslate afterward without Trados. This is simplest way to overcome this errror.

My computer hasn't exploded but... May 23, 2004

Fortunately it is still in one piece!

Everything seems OK: all characters both at the beginning and end of the string are there, there is a manual break but it is before the TU, paragraph mark is at the end of the unit.
Nevertheless, there is nothing I can do to close/restore to source/etc that segment... The new error message I get is "Cursor must be in source or target field". Needless to say that I have tried with cursor in both fields, again, I cannot close the segment.

I will try uninstalling/reinstalling Trados, and Office just in case. But if you can think of something else, let me know!

Thanks, everybody!
Andrea

Do not reinstall Trados/Office May 23, 2004

as it is not a fault of them, I suppose.
Mostly such faults occur with badly formatted or else damaged files, that come from customers.
What I would do, if I were you:
First I would close Trados Workbench.
Then I would mark the text from the beginning of the corrupted (yet still opened segment) until the end of the segment including all Trados delimeters.
These are (I assume you have all characters shown - including hidden text) the beggining mark {0> followed by a paragraph mark, then the source text, then the mark for match , followed by a paragraph mark, then the translated text (if any, or source text, if copy source on no match in WB is active, or a free place), and then the closing mark

Andrea, follow Ralf advice! It works! Also, a colon and a paragraph mark.

I tried to be as neat as possible and tried things out one by one. What finally solved the problem was "rename the file + colon + paragraph mark".

Thanks so much, everybody!!!
