Hi,

I am working with trados 7 and Word 2003 and I can't close a segment which I've already translated.

When I do "Fix document" the document gets stuck and I can't do anything.

Any solution for this problem beside starting to translate everything again (which I really wanted to avoid)?

Thank you in advance
Ivana

Delete segment Mar 28, 2007

Hello Ivana,
Try deleteting the whole segment:
First highlight everything you want to delete.
Then press Ctrl + Space to clear all styles.
Then highlight and delete one row after another.
Finally copy the sentence from the original document and paste it into the translated document.
You might have to close and restart Trados before you can continue working.

Best regards,
Cecilia

You have deleted a tag Mar 28, 2007

It happens this when you have deleted an end-tag too. Please check the tags of the segment . You can copy them from another segment too, then the program goes to the next segment if you click next.

Select the source and/or trgate segments both, plus a line above and below, and delete. Then copy back in the source from your original source text, and start translating again. You may have a version still in the TM.

Thank you for your replies Mar 28, 2007

Next time I'll know what to do.

This time I was in the middle of the document so I cut it before the opened segment and then started a new document with the rest of the text. I found it easier.

Regards
Ivana
