Hi all,

I have a 2 pages MS Word document.

Problem:
Tag Editor refuses to open it reporting the 80005 error
Studio refuses to open it reporting the 80005 error
Trados MS Macro + WB...handles it without problems!

Ms Word 2003 offers me the prompt dialog to unprotect the document, while the same document (I mean the same file!) opened in MS Word 2007 doesn't appear to be protected at all (but if you try opening this in Tag Editor or Studio, you get the 80005 error again!)

Problem (and solution!) known?

Thanks in davance,
RR

Hello Renato,

To open your word document, you shold use Office 2003 (where the Trados tool bar appears) and not TagEditor.

I had that problem as well and it was because I had two different versions of Office installed.

I hope I can help you out with this information.

Surely not protected? Oct 19, 2009

Hello Renato,

I presume you closed the *doc before trying to import it into TE and also checked in MSWord 2003 whether the document protection was on/off...? In case it was on, and you switched it off, close both MSWord and TE and re-start TE. It normally solve the problem. If not, copy & paste the text into a new *doc.

BTW, can you process the *doc directly in MSWord (2003 or 2007) with TWB?

Similarly, sometimes TE tells me it can't open a *doc because track changes is on and won't import the file, even if I had switched track changes off and closed / re-opened TE. The only solution I have found so far was to copy and pate the text into a new *doc

BTW, which build are you running? I remember that there have been some TE issues with Word, solved via hotfix, so make sure the run the most recent build (of Suite 2007)

Giuliana

Try to kill Word Oct 19, 2009

Hi RR,
try to kill the winword.exe process in the Task Manager before you try opening the DOC file.
Otherwise, I suggest that you open the DOC, save it to a different location on your HDD and try to open the copy. Let's see if that works.

Tag Editor usually performs better than MS Word Macro. Anyway, I need to use Tag Editor here.

I'm afraid this is not my case: I used separate machines, one with MS Word 2003 and one other with Ms Word 2007. The results are described in my previous message.

Giuliana Buscaglione:

Yes, I did.icon_smile.gif As I said in my previous message, the protection results ON in Ms Word 2003 (I try to unprotect the document, and I get the "Insert Password" prompt) and OFF in MS Word 2007. Either I open the *.doc or the *.docx, Studio and Tag Editor answer with "(80005)".

Unfortunately this is not a solution for me, because - even if use the deepest MS Word Copy & Paste options - there are still some formattings not copied into the new document.

As I said, "Trados MS Macro + WB...handles it without problems!"...the only problem actually being that - once you translated the document using the MS Word Macro - the WorkBench does not clean up the the file! So I would have just a (useless) Bilingual doc.

I'm afraid this is not my case here...
BTW, you have another workaround to try in case of "ghost" track change issues: forcing the MS Word filter in Trados (Select the "Process documents with non accetepted or rejected changes" checkbox)...You have to be sure that there are not track changes, otherwise they will be treated as text, and therfore counted and translated.

I'm using: Tag Editor 8.3.0.863 - Studio 2009 (I tried both without and with SP1).

I have solved the problem using MemoQ (the 4FREE edition: it opened -> translated -> saved the target file - without any error message)...But honestly, working on a PROFESSIONAL Suite / Studio version, I still would like to know that there is a way to handle "this document" in Trados!

Thanks for the received support and for any further coming one...
RR

Didi it...Saved elsewhere...Saved as RTF and then back as DOC...Saved as DOCX and then back as DOC...Saved as DOCX -> RTF - > DOC........

And - subquery - anyone knowing why Tag Editor takse so long to open - most often it simply does not open - RTF files? (I'm nottalking about this speciic "protected" document but different ones...please note that I have tried switching on and off the "TRADOSTag XML workflow for Workbench RTF files")?


Still hoping a solution does exist ...

Send me the file Oct 19, 2009

Hi Renato,
if the content of the file is not too sensitive, send it to me along with the information on the language pair (including local variants) and I will see what I can do. Perhaps I'll have more luck.
You have my e-mail address, don't you?

Anyway I really appreciate your interest and availability!

Create a new word document and insert the text from the protected word document. Jul 15, 2014

This proved to be an effective solution when using the Studio.
First you need to create a new, blank Microsoft Word document. Next, click the Insert tab, then Text from file. Browse to the protected file and select it. This will import the text into the new document, which can be subsequently worked on in the Studio.
