I have trados 6.5 freelance; I'm doing a translation with lots of images on the page. There are 5 pages; no problem with the other 4. But with this last one I get to one line, translate it, and then instead of moving forward Trados just bounces back to it. Can anybody tell me what is going on, what I can do?

Are you using Normal view (as opposed to Page layout)?

Best regards,

You are obviously riunning into a table with connected cells Jan 13, 2006

When this occurs, be sure to switch to the layout view, show table grid lines, and - when you come to the lates segment, after which the cursor jumps back again to allready translated segments, press ALT+END to stop translation at this point. Move the cursor now manually to the next untranslated segment. Do so as often as necessary.
AFAIK there is no way to circumvent that. The reason are allways tables with connected cells.

This behaviour does however not occur with TAG Editor 7 and Word files.
