I´m trying to export a TM a client sent me and I get error message:
50050 Source segment is empty!
Reorganizing has never hurt - and it may "burp" on that segment
Reorganization won´t work. I remember trying to reorganize the TM once while I was translating. TWB just froze, I had to close it via Windows Task Manager. I didn´t know why at the moment, now I realize it must have been due to this empty segment.
I would simply browse once through it (at least through its beginning, depends on how big the TM is.) The alternative is searching by date (from early to latest) and hoping the search will get stuck somewhere.
I´ll try searching by date and let you know whether it worked.
In any case, an empty source segment is invalid, i.e. TM is shot. Probably it can be repaired. However, if I had all bilingual materials and the TM sent, I would create a new TM, independent of the current snafu.
Regards and wish you all the best

I don´t have all the bilingual material. I was sent just 1 chapter from a 350 page manual, and the TUs belong to the whole manual.
I wanted to have it as reference material for future translations from this client. If I can´t find a way to delete this TU, I´ll just clean my file in an empty TM to backup at least this chapter.
Thanks for your ideas, Vito.
