I need to export a big document that has been translated end revised partially. However, each time I try to export it, I get a message that tells me that I can't do this because they are still errors in the document. As the file is quite big, I need to send partial translations to my boss. Someone can enlight me? Thanks and happy Eastern!

Note: I have seen that this has already been discussed and answered. However, the solutions given doesn't explain how to proceed with files with hidden paragraphs.

Copy source to target without confirming Mar 29, 2013

I reckon you should be able to copy the source to target, and then export your document without confirming the segments thus copied. If you confirmed the segments, you would fill you memory with segments that will have source text in the target language.

Hi Thomas: thanks a lot for your kind help. I did not confirm any copied source text to target text cause I won't be able to reverse the process. The problem I had is that not standard inline tags like "pict" were not copied at all to the target text. So I tagged the copied target text manually, but this was/will be a big waste of time.
