Dear colleagues,

i have a problem with Trados Tag Editor.

The client gave me a Tag Editor document for translation which i could open with the Tag Editor.

The problem is that i cannot translate the document using the open/get command of Tag Editor because this command is blocked.

I had this problem withe several tag editor documents. Others worked fine that is i could translate the segments with open/get.

Did someone had the same problem with tag editor?

Is this a common problem?

Thank you for your reply

yours sincerly
Alexander Schunk

Dear Alexander,

If I understood your problem correctly, the solution is very easy.

This happen when the languages of the document in Tag Editor are different from the languages of the TM in Workbench. What you have to do is check if the languages are the same, change them if they aren't and click the Workbench interface button in Tag Editor to reconnect Tag Editor with Workbench.

I hope everything works out.
