Hello everyone!
I have a good number of powerpoint files and I wanted to use Trados for the translation. Most of them are ok but for some:
-when I try to analyse the file, workbench crashes
-when I try to open the file with tageditor, the same happens.
But I can open the file, and modify it, from powerpoint with no problems.
I thought it might be because of their size and the number of images, so I've made shorter, and lighter, files, but the same happens.
The message I get is the following (sorry it's in Spanish):

If it were a privacy problem, then I shouldn't be allowed to modify the document from powerpoint neither, but it does let me.

Thank you very much in advance for your help and time.

cut and paste May 25, 2010

Hi Paula,

I had the same problem with certain ppt files (APPCRASH in TagEditor 2007). I did a "cut and paste" of the entire presentation into a new ppt file. It did open Ok in TagEditor, but I had lost the fancy background. I did not try to paste the translation back into the original background because the client did not require it, so I don't know if it can be done afterwards.

doesn't work... May 25, 2010

Hi Julie,
Thanks for your answer, but I'm afraid it doesn't work in this case. I've tried to make lighter files, doing copy-and-paste, but no success. Also tried doing "special paste", but nothing, it continues crashing again...
Thanks anyway!icon_wink.gif
