I have a problem reimporting a translated .isc file to Adobe Indesign CS with Story Collector. The program crashes and displays a popup with an undefined error.

The operating system is windows xp
Trados version is 6.5
Indesign version CS

Has anybody a clue of what is happening?
is there a way to import the translation?

Thanks in advance

Good day!

Just a guess, maybe Sysfilter for InDesign by ECM Engineering would help.

With respect,

Hard to say without seeing the files Sep 24, 2006

First, I would make sure the plugin is working correctly and the source files aren't corrupt by importing the source ISC into the source INDD.

If that goes ok then I would compare the translated ISC to the source ISC and see where the differences are, aside from the translated text. It could be something simple like the header or it could be that someone changed the file extension instead of properly cleaning the file - which has happened to me.

The last resort is to open the ISC in the translating software, such as Tag Editor, and copy and paste the translated text into the INDD file.
