I received a translation memory from my customer, but the system suddenly locks up and “TW4Win.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close…” message appears for only several segments in 9206 sw (SDL Trados 2006 Freelance). Interestingly, when I rewrite or paste these segments into a blank document, the same is repeated. I tried the solution mentioned in, but had no success.

I translated these segments without workbench, and then imported the alignment file into the TM before delivery.
There is no problem for my customer.

But I wonder why this problem happens (only in some segments). Does anyone know why it happens? It is pretty interesting to me.

Thanks in advance.

A wild guess... Jul 18, 2006

The tandem Trados and Word is known for showing all sorts of strange behaviour when fonts and/or character sets don't match. That might be something to check in the faulty segments.

But it's just a guess...
