This has happened twice over the last few days. When I'm polishing rough drafts I will commonly save the unclean file and then come back to work on it later. Trados has "cleaned" my file for me the last couple times I tried to open again. When I try to use "Translate to Fuzzy" to at least recreate my unclean file I discover that the changes I made during the last round of drafting were not incorporated into my TM so the Translate to Fuzzy will return the draft to its previous state and erase all my labors.

I'm going to cut the file and separate out the mostly finished section from the rest which a Translate to Fuzzy will not affect much, but in the long term does anyone know what the problem is?

I have SDLX Version 8 Freelance and Word 2007.

Show hidden text Apr 16, 2010

It sounds like you're probably just hiding hidden text with an accidentally pressed keyboard shortcut (or Word is defaulting to that setting for some reason).
Dig up "Show hidden text" from the menu - I don't know where it is in Word 2007.
