Hi,

I have translated five documents, some large, with graphs, textboxes, and a lot of formatting crap.
I encountered errors many times during my translation (within Word) and now, I can't find a way to clean them up.
If I try to clean the .doc, I get a "(87) Incorrect parameter".
If I tick the box "XML workflow for .doc files", it runs for two seconds then says "can't process as TTX because the file was saved as bilingual in Word".
If I try to convert as .rtf, I get the "(87) Incorrect parameter". with or without the "XML workflow" boxes ticked.
My version is 7.1.0.719

I tried to copy and paste everything in a new document without success.


Any help will be appreciated.
Cheers.

Hi,

in Microsoft Word, choose "Makros" in menu "Tools". Subsequently choose makro "TW4Win.Clean.Main". This makro cleans the text from all "TRADOS elements".

I solved the problem by uninstalling everything, installing a newer Trados in trial edition, and using the macro "tw...Clean main" inside Word.

That might have worked without the two hours of repetitive setup/reboot...but I did not know the trick at that time.icon_smile.gif
