I've translated a set of Powerpoint files with TagEditor. Want to clean them now to get the translated PPTs back, and after the whole cleaning process I get a message of Server Connection failed, Error message 2147467259.
Anyone knows how to solve it?

Thanks a lot! I have to clean 14 files and deliver them still tonight.

Very simple - don't clean the file! Jun 24, 2005

Start Powerpoint in the background, without acutally opening any particular file, just having an empty screen. Go to TAG Editor, open your translation. From Menu File chose Save target as... and put a proper name for your translated file and then let TAG Editor save it. You will get a nice clean PPT file.

No problem at all. Be aware, that it may take several minutes to generate a PPT, due to variuos TAGs in your translated file. This is normal and no reason to worry.

Regards
Jerzy

Same problem Aug 1, 2008

I have Office 2007, a PPT from MS Office 2000-2003, Trados 2007 FL and an error "Odwołanie do obiektu nie zostało ustawione na wystąpienie obiektu" when trying to clean up the file in Workbench or save from TagEditor via "Save Target as...". Anyone know a solution?
