I hope I'm just doing something wrong, but I'm getting pretty desperate here. I use Trados Suite 2007 and always make a project to translate word .doc files. Trados converts them in TagEditor to .ttx files. When I'm done with the translating, I always check again and remove some typos etc. THEN when I'm happy I "update TM and convert to original file format" to produce my customer deliverable file, so conversion from .ttx to .doc. Now I noticed that after conversion I have a translation, BUT with the typos still in it! ARggghh. Pretty bad. I checked the TM (by exporting to text and checking in several stages), but the TM IS updated. My file structure looks like this:
When I Use Save Target As in TagEditor it does work fine: the .doc file is the latest version. However I can not always convert really back to the original with all file formats (for example .mif files) and also am I worrying to have sent unproofread docs to customers.
Do any of you have experienced this also, and have some tips? Is this a bug in Trados?? If so, it would be pretty serious I guess!? Am I doing something wrong?? Please help!
