Hello everyone,
I have got a job to deliver but I can't see the summary in the source text ( .doc format) and therefore I can't translate it. Is there something wrong in my software? I really don't understand. It is probably a problem of compatibility (on the file I can read "compatibility modality). How can I solve this problem?

Thank you in advance,

Once I had the same problem Oct 20, 2011

and I converted the .doc in .pdf. In the .pdf the summary reappeared. I don't know why. Maybe it was luck..

What is this "summary" Oct 20, 2011

What you describe doesn't sound normal, but Microsoft Word is known to do all kinds of weird things. If you could tell us in a little more detail what this "summary" is, perhaps we could help you better.
