Quick ideas May 11, 2009

1. Repair your installation of SDL Trados from Control Panel > Add/Remove software.
2. In SDL Trados Filter Settings (under Filters in SDL Trados in the Start>Programs menu) use Restore deault settings under PowerPoint 2000-2003.
3. Make a copy of the PPT file, go to Format > Change fonts and change any less common fonts to e.g. Arial (or Arial Unicode). You'll have to restore them in the target file, but it shouldn't affect the translation.
4. If that doesn't help, you might try using Werecat (http://www.volny.cz/ddaduc/werecat.html) and translate the file in Word using Trados. Good luck!
