Hi everybody!

I´m working with Trados 7.0 and I have just tried to clean the file I was working with.

It´s a Word file, plain text, no tables, no pictures.

Workbench message was that it couldn´t find the file, since it was apparently deleted, or moved.

I checked, tried again and the same message appeared.

Therefore, as I thought there was some problem with my TM, I created another one by importing the units.

Finally, I deleted the file and translated it again using Translate to fuzzy. But when I tried to clean this new file, the same message appeared.

Do you have any clue of what´s going on?

If you do, please let me know.

Thanks in advance

Pamela

Note: I can´t clean nor analize files.
Other tools do work (WinAling, TagEditor), right?

Hi Pamela,
What exactly is the error message? Sounds like a log file issue - the file that was deleted or moved being the log file, not the file you're trying to clean or analyse.

Search this forum for "log file" - this was discussed several times before.

HTH, Ralf

Second the log file error and possible workaround Apr 23, 2007

I agree with Ralf that it sounds like a log file error. Maybe you have moved or deleted the TM and/or log file. Try to create a new log file and clean/analyse again.

If nothing works and you need a clean file, you can make a copy of the file and "clean" it Word by deleting all hidden text. However, the segments will not be cleaned into the TM.
But it's a workaround.

Do not clean in Workbench Apr 23, 2007

there is a Word macro for this purpose.
It works, and does not (almost) change any formating in Word.
Press ALT+F8 and then select tw4winClean.Main and let it run.
You should be aware you do not update your TM in this way, so if you need to do some changes on translation units, this must be done BEFORE cleaning by means of OPENING a TU and properly closing it with saving in the TM.

It was the log file, apparently Apr 23, 2007

Thank you very much.

Both of you were right... apparently it was the log file, for I have just created all files again, and there was no problem either with cleaning or analizing files.


Thanks a lot!


Pamela
