Hello,

I use SDL Trados Studio 2009 SP2 - 9.1.1264.0 and I've just finished quite a large project but when I tried to save the file as target text the following message appeared: Zieltext konnte nicht gespeichert werden: An error occured while writing the document.

I assume that the sourse doc-file was made from a .pdf and it contains some weird symbols which might be causing the problem.

I tried sending the file to a colleague so she could try saving the target text but she received the same error message, I guess the source file is simply corrupted.

I am really desperate so I would be very grateful if anybody could give me a hand.

Thank you.

Does the untouched or partially translated file save as target? Sep 10, 2010

This would be the first thing to start with - if yes, the problem is still your translation, if no, you will need to repair the source file.

But before you go checking please do a QA check on your translated file - press F8 and observe the error messages (if any) you get. By double clicking on error messages stating a missing tag go to the affected segment and correct the errors. Should you not find any, start the source diagnostic.

How do I do a source diagnostic? Sep 11, 2010

Hello Jerzy,

Thank you for your reply. It doesn't find any errors so I guess I should do a source diagnostic but I don't know how I'm afraid. Could you describe the actions path in German as my Studio is in German and my English isn't very good.

Thanks in advance!

Save source in another format and try again Sep 12, 2010

Save source as Word 2007 and try again.
If not, try to open source in OpenOffice and try again.
Was the source converted from PDF?

I saved the file as .rtf and it worked Sep 12, 2010

Thank you for giving me this piece of advice, Jerzy!

I saved the file as .rtf and it worked.

Yes, the source text had been converted from a .pdf by the client.

Once again, thank you very much for all your help, Jerzy. Your support has been excellent.
