Dear fellows,

I'm trying to save a target file or even previewing my translation on Trados 2007, but the following message is displayed: Error while writing breaks!

I'm in urgent need to send this file to my customer and cannot manage to solve this.

Please, if you are familiar with this type of error and know how to solve this problem, help me.

Thanks in advance.

Patrícia Soares

Hi Patricia,
This issue has been discussed on several occasions in the past - see this topic, for example.

Article 1468 on the SDL Trados Knowledge Base also describes what needs to be done.

HTH, Ralf
