Hallo!
1. Frage: Bei meinen Versuchen, eine TM zu aktivieren, erhalte ich meistens die Meldung Local TM failed to connect. Translation Memory header is invalid.
2. Frage: Beim Versuch den zu übersetzenden Text in DOc-Format zu öffenen, kommt die Meldung "Tracking changes detected in document. Please accept all tracking changes before loading."

Kann mir jemand mit diesen Problemen helfen?

Vielen Dank im voraus!

Monika

Dear Monika,

Most likely, this happens in the following cases:

1- Trados TXT TM: You have to convert into TMX to be able to open in Wordfast Pro.
2- PlusTools TM: Open in Wordfast Classic and "Reorganize".
3- Corrupted header.


You can copy the header of the TM here so that I can tell you exactly what the problem is.

1) Please open the original doc file in MS Word and disable "Track Changes", save.

To do so in MS Word 2007, under “Review”:

- Accept > Accept all changes in document
- Make sure that “Track Changes” is off. It is in orange colour, click on it to disable it.
- Save the doc file.

In MS Word previous versions, you should find similar options under Tools > Track changes.

2) Open the original doc file (after disabling "Track Changes") in WF Pro.



I hope this helps. Please let me know.
