Hi everybody,
Using trados Studio, I've translated a .doc, made sure there are no error messages and tried to "save target as". I get the error message:
"failed to save target content. An erroor occurred while converting fields back to Microsoft Word format".
So I follow the suggestions found here on ProZ:
open using open & fix - same message
save .doc as .rtf and translate again - same message
open .rtf file and save as .doc - same again
copy & paste original text to new .doc - same again.

This is driving me crazy. What's more, I even get an error message from bmc when I try to log the case with SDL, but that's another story ...
