In SDL I click on "Create Translation" after completing the document, then the prompt says the document has been created successfully. I then check the file where it should be, and only the original and the SDL format appear. No document in English. It did not appear after searching my entire computer either.

Any idea?!

Just to note what I've already done:

-Restarted SDL
-Restarted computer
-Refreshed files
-Repeatedly gone through the "Create Translation" process
-Saved the SDL doc in other folders and attempted to create translation from there

I'm sorry, it's SDLX.
