Trados Translator's Workbench (Build 247)
While translating on a Word file, suddenly segment showed an -{}- instead of closing. If closed, next segment will show the same -{}- instead of opening, and nothing can be translated.
I'll appreciate any help for fixing this problem. Thanks in advance.

HI Tadzio,
It's a bit late, so I'll be brief...

This problem has been discussed a few times - have a look at the Advanced Forum Search, and look for curly brackets (preferably narrowing your search to this forum). You will find a number of threads dealing with this.

Let us know if you find a solution.

Best regards,
