Hello all,

I exported a bilingual file to Word to review it. When I try to import the reviewed file, I get an error message saying "Unable to merge segment 1". I tried changing segment 1 to see if that would help (I had added a comment to the segment before I exported the file and deleted the comment to see if it would solve the problem), but nothing I did makes a difference.

Any ideas?

fixing the 'cannot merge' error Jul 8, 2015

Hi Simone,

I ran into the same problem a while ago (working with Trados Studio 2014 and Word 2010). I searched the forums for this error and I believe in the end I had to change the file extension of the original Source document from .docx to .doc and then start a new project with that file.
If you have confirmed all segments of your original translation that new project should more or less just populate all segments by itself.
Then you should be able to export and import the review file without any problems.

I believe this is what I did...maybe search a little on the forums yourself before going ahead with my suggestion...
