I just exported a translated .docx file from Deja Vu X Professional. I tried to open it in Word (2007) but received the following error message (in German):

Unable to open the Office Open XML file because its content is causing problems.
Details: The name in the end tag of the element must match the element type in the start tag.
Position: Component: word/dokument.xml, Line: 2, Column: 26372

Unfortunately, I have no idea what that means ...

Can anyone help, please?

Many thanks in advance!

This obviously means, that Jan 5, 2009

the XML content of the file is corrupted. I don’t know, what can cause it. Did you validate tags before exporting the document?

I think, this thread needs to be moved to the DejaVu X support forum.

Thanks for your reply. Do you mean codes? If so: Yes, I checked them and there were no mismatched codes.

Ok, I will post the question in Deja Vu X support forum.
