Hi everyone,

I am just experiencing this problem on my TagEditor, while trying to "save as target.." a translated excel file.

The error message:
Document structure error: translated text lenght for name "Steuerung Betriebsmerkmale" is longer than allowed 31 characters. Please change the text and try again.

Has anybody of you an idea?

I habe already tried to change the mentioned name, but it didn't workicon_frown.gif

.. translation now shorter? Jun 10, 2009

Hi Thomas,

uhm.. and the translation in the cell is now shorter than 31 strokes? Did you run the verifier?

Tab Jun 11, 2009

Hi Thomas,

usually this message appeared to me when I changed the name inside the tab on the bottom (linguetta) indicating the title of the work sheet with a too long title...

I hope it helps

Solution Jun 11, 2009

Dear all,

I have found a solution, which is translating manually the tabs on the bottom of the Excel file. TagEditor was detecting them as too long title, counting both original Tab + translation (of course more than 31 words). Hope to solve this bug one day...

Thank you all
