Hi there!

I just translated without any problems a Word 2003 file in TagEditor (Trados Suite 2007). Now, I am not able to save as target. I get the message "The target document cannot be created because the tag structure in the TagEditor is invalid".

As I could resolve a similar problem with Powerpoint-files, saving the original document as 2007 file, I tried to save the original word file as word 2007 file and translated it again in TagEditor. When trying to save as target, I get the same messageicon_frown.gif

I checked tags in both documents, there are no invalid tags indicated......

Could anyone help me pleeeeeaaase..... ???

Best regards. Sabine

Fix document? Jun 28, 2010

I suppose you already tried Trados-Fix Document? Helped with my recent rtf issue, not sure what it solves for TagEditor files...
Sorry, forget that, of course this is not possible... I'd probably try opening the file in an xml editor.

Fix document??? Jun 28, 2010

Thanks for your reply. But, sorry, what is fix document????

Of course, I am using a german version. So are you referring to "repair document" in the Trados-Word toolbar?

I meanwhile tried to translate the file in word instead of TagEditor. But cannot open the Workbench, when the word file is open....

Did you run verification in TagEditor? Jun 28, 2010

Press F8 in TagEditor to run verification and see if some tag is missing.

Activate the Generic Tag Verifier first Jun 28, 2010

Before you proceed as suggested by Yossi, activate the Generic Tag Verifier plug-in under "Tools > Plug-ins...".

Then press F8 to run the verification (this process may take a while depending on the document length), correct any tag issues detected by the plug-in and retry the cleanup.

Thanks to you all Jun 29, 2010

Of course, I checked all the tags as you suggest.
I also did check the original file (without any translation) and even could not save that! So, the original file was bugged.....

Try one more thing Jun 29, 2010

Before converting the Word document to TTX, check that before each section break and fields like TOC there is a paragraph mark (show formatting marks using the ¶ icon or clicking Ctrl+*), and add one if necessary.

DOC > RTF > DOC Jun 29, 2010

Hello Sabine,
in addition to Yossi's suggestion, I would also suggest that you try one or several the following:

1. Save the DOC as RTF, open the RTF in TagEditor, translate one segment and try to "Save target as...". If it works, proceed with the rest of the document; or

2. Save the DOC as RTF and save the RTF as DOC again; open this new DOC in TagEditor, translate one segment and try to "Save target as...". If it works, proceed with the rest of the document; or

3. Save the DOC as DOCX (you will need the MS Office compatibility pack to do this; downloadable from Microsoft web), open the DOCX in TagEditor, translate one segment and try to "Save target as...". If it works, proceed with the rest of the document; or

4. Launch MS Word, click the "Open" button, select the respective Word file and open it with "Open and repair...". Save the repaired document under a new name, open it in TagEditor, translate one segment and try to "Save target as...". If it works, proceed with the rest of the document. If not, try points 1 – 3 with the repaired document.

I hope at least one of these four suggestions will work for you.
