Error while converting to Word Document: end tag does not have a matching starting tag

I translated a bunch of files (doc) in TE, SDL Trados 2007.
Some files cannot be saved as target. Instead I get the above error message.

Known problem? Remedy?

Thanks!
Heinrich

Some discussions in the fora... Dec 3, 2009

such as this one:
http://www.proz.com/forum/sdl_trados_support/99130-error_message_in_tag_editor:_end_tag_does_not_have_a_matching_start_tag.html

You won't have any problem finding other ones by searching with the exact phrasing of the error or at least with the bit end tag does not have a matching starting tag...

TOPIC STARTER
Well Dec 3, 2009

The only solution was to copy the main text into an empty file and translate again. There was nothing wrong with tags, the files just did not fit for trados.

Translating and cleaning in WB did not work either. Finally I exported the TM and translated in WF Classic. There were some tags with many lines of code which I removed manually. The reason must have been awful formatting of the original Word-files.
Regards
Heinrich
