Hello to everyone!

I need help with my trados. I have just finished the translation but I can't clean up the document because the programme says that one translation unit is open, but it is not! How can I solve this problem? I used the close translation unit button but it didn't work, and in the help included in the programme I can find no answer. I hope not to have to translate the whole document again, that would be killer! Thank you very much in advanceicon_smile.gif and have a nice weekend.

It won't be the last time this happens to you. May 8, 2009

I would first select Fix Document from the TRADOS menu. If that does not work I would save the document, close TWB, open TWB, reorganize the memory, open the document. It has worked for me many times. It won't be the last time this happens to you.

Anyway, you would not have to translate the document again because every segment is in the TM. If all fails you could use the pretranslate function and it will get translated. I hope you worked with a copy of your original document.

I am sure other colleagues may have better alternatives so while you give them a chance to answer, you can search the TRADOS forum because this has been discussed numerous times.
