I get the following message when I try to clean up in TagEditor

Error 80005 : unknown tag when converting to Word document.

Does anyone know how to solve this?

Thanks in advance,

Did you run the Tag verifier? Aug 7, 2009

And are you able to save the original doc as target after having translated just the first sentence?
If yes, the error is on your side, if not, then the original file is already damaged.
