Hi folks,

Could anybody please help me? I am using Trados 7 freelance and for some reason, while I am working I cannot close a translation segment once translated which makes impossible to continue the translation. Can anyone tell me what am I doing wrong?

Thanks all before hand

Repair document Oct 21, 2006

Hi Carlos,

Have you tried using the "Repair document" function in the Trados tab? That should do the trick.

Best regards,

Hi, what message appears in Trados Workbench? Oct 22, 2006

When you have problems closing segments, it's normally because a tag has been damaged and there are workarounds for this.

There have been similar recent forum postings so if you do a forum search you should find some helpful advice,

Hope this helps,

Try adding an enter at the end of the paragraph Oct 22, 2006

Fix document and reopen the segment. Sometimes this is enough.
