I did a translation of an Excel-file, where the text was in three "books". I translated in TE and got down to the bottom of the file. I send the translation as bilingual ttx to the client, but they notice after cleanup that the third book was not translated at all.
I had to copy the third tab to an empty file and translate that and copy the translation back to the third tab in the original file. Then I still had to translate the tab-name manually.
Is that normal behaviour of TE (SDL Trados 2007 Freelance)?

Regards
Heinrich

Erronous third tab Jan 24, 2009

I had the same experience when my PC had insufficient memories or trouble with MS Office settings. When I redo the TE file, every tab is OK.
For worksheet [book] name, I need to do manual translation without help of TE. Excel worksheet name is restricted to 28 [sic] characters and manual typing is required.
