I was testing open office writer and saved a Word-doc-file from within Writer as a Word XP compatible doc-file. When I open it in Word XP, all looks well, but TE cannot open it. Instead it has to be closed down.

Also WB crashes when I try to translate the OO file there.

Is this a known bug in Trados 2007 or what?

Regards
Heinrich

Why did you convert it? Dec 4, 2009

Hello Heinrich,
I may sound obtuse but what was the need of converting an .ODT file to a .DOC one in this case? I tried the same operation on my own and cannot open any segment. This confirms, at least from my experience, that files converted between MS Office and OpenOffice are some kind of "neithers/nors", thus making further processing with e.g. TagEditor impossible.
Another example: Wordfast Pro does not recognise .ODT files converted to .DOC either.

After saving from Word it works again Dec 4, 2009

Yes, strange. The original file was Word doc, after I loaded it back to Word and saved it under another name all is normal again, TE translates it like the original.
This was only a test, I wondered if I could use Writer instead of Word. Doesn't look good. How about Studio, is it compatible to Open Office?

Regards
Heinrich

OpenOffice / StarOffice is fully compatible with TagEditor and you can work directly from an .ODT, .ODS or .ODP file in TagEditor just like you would do for .DOC, .XLS or .PPT. This is what I normally do although I don't get that much OpenOffice / StarOffice files.

What works so far (and this is only for the record) is to open MS Office files with OpenOffice, to save them in the appropriate OO format and then to process them in TE.

In both cases, you will have a nice "tag soup" at the beginning of each file...

Wordfast Pro and .odt files converted to .doc Dec 8, 2009

Hi Laurent,

I wanted to let you know that as long as you save your .odt file as Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP .doc or .rtf, and you are using the latest version of Wordfast Pro (2.2.4), you will be able to handle the file properly.

Sincerely,

Kristyna
