Hello,

I am working with a Word document and a Trados 2007 TM. As I pass on to some segments, instead of opening the next segment, I get the symbol -{}- in the phrase. Trados WB indicates "Searching..." on its bottom-right corner. When I try to do something, like try to open the segment again, I get the message "Previous request not yet finished" on the bottom-left corner of WB. And I have to shut it down and start it again to move on, translate the -{}- segment without Trados and pray that it will work right at the next segment.

Has anyone else come across this situation and, if yes, how did you deal with it?

Thank you,
E.

This issue was commented several times.
Just google for "Trados curly brackets"

Cheers
