I've translated an excel file in Cafetran, with filters I've set the import column (and it imported and segmented it correctly) and the export column (where I want my translation to appear). When I try to export the translation instead I get a strange document that's only vaguely similar to the original, and instead of the translated segments I see bits of the TM. I can export to txt and word correctly but the segments are segmented (sorry!) so I have to copy into a txt, delete all the line breaks and paste into the documents. I will probably do this because I need to hand in the document very soon (and it's not huge) - but I wonder what went wrong and why this is happening to avoid the problem in the future.

Solved? Sep 28, 2016

I just read this posting of yours:

As you know, CafeTran can do this, so I'm wondering: has your problem been solved?
