I've double checked and there is not a single provisional segment in a document that I have just finished translating. I need to deliver the translation and I do not know how to solve this problem. Wordfast won't clean it, any suggestions, please. Thank you in advance.

Press F10 with no segments open. Apr 12, 2007

Try this! It will open any remaining provisional segments. If one pops up, press alt+end and F10 again, etc. until a message pops up telling you that there are no more provisional segments.
Hope it works.

John

Thank you Apr 12, 2007

I guess I panicked (deadline, ahhh!), so I used the source file and the existing TM to make a new target file and it worked. Fortunately the text was only some 20 pages so it did not take long. However, thank you very much John, I will certainly use your strategy the next time I encounter the same problem.

Be careful! Apr 12, 2007

Hello Mira,

Provisional segments haven't been entered into your TM! I would double check your final document.

Good luck,
John

I'm still checking Apr 12, 2007

Thanks again John, I've managed to clean the file in order apply the spell check and there is still enough time left to go through it again.

Thank you, John! Nov 4, 2008

I have just had the same problem and used your F10 method. It worked and saved me from a major panic attack. Thank you!
