dear colleagues,

I have to translate a book from paper, so I scanned all pages and converted them into .doc using omnipage 15. when I started translating with trados workbench 8.0.0.822, the first title was ok, then when I clicked save/open next, the segment closed and nothing happened. it is not possible to open any other segment. I have tried to cancel formating, but it's of no use.

I have tried to use TagEditor, but it says it does not recognize the format (which is doc!!). has this ever happened to anyone of you? by the way, some files I converted using Abbyy FineReader are ok... how is this possible?

thank you!!

Format of document after OCR Oct 23, 2007

Most probably your document has been saved as rtf with doc as extension.
I would try to resave it in Word as doc under a new name.
But IMHO the best way would be to remove all formatting before saving in OCR, save as rtf, reformat the document manualy using styles and save as doc, then translate in Tageditor.

Jerzy
