Hi. I've been using trados now for 3 years and this has never happened before. Luckily it was only a small file. When I cleaned up I was left with a .BAK file with only the source and a .Doc file with only the source. I tried saving the file again from outlook express and running it again, and this time it worked normally. As I said, this was no disaster as the file was very small, but I suppose it has happened once and could happen again with a large file, leaving me no choice but to revise the translation all over again and clean up with the macro. Has this every happened to anyone? Is there any way of preventing it? Thanks in advance.
