I have imported and translated a powerpoint file in Trados Suite 2007. When I look at the preview in the target text, it looks great, but I only get 1 slide at a time. I need all the slides and then I can save it?

File -> Save Target As Oct 22, 2009

Use this command to save the translated file.
Your ttx (TagEditor) file will not be deleted (in fact it will remain open), enabling you to save changes to your translation in your memory if you so wish.

Can you provide more detail? I have translated dozens of PowerPoint files, but I have never imported them in Trados Suite, always loaded into TagEditor.

Is that what you mean? If so, when you Save Target, that generate the complete translated file.
