I've been working on a file and saving it using the save as option and now I can't find it anywhere. Have I lost it?

which version of Trados? Feb 16, 2011

Hi Lucy,
what version are you using? 2007 or Studio?
Also, did you try to locate the file with the name, via Windows' search tool?

Sounds obvious but... Feb 16, 2011

... maybe also use the Save As command again and the path may still be the same. This way you can check to see where you mioght have put it. You can also get the exact filename it should have been saved under which might make it easier to search using the advice from Aude.

if you use Trados Studio 2009 and a project,

try Start> My Documents > SDL Trados Studio > Projects > YourProjectName > YourTargetLanguage

Or with the project open, try Save Target as and note down the location where you are saving.

found it Feb 17, 2011

Ok, I have found it. I'm struggling with Trados 2009 I have to admit, finding it all a bit overwhelming.
Thanks for taking the time to answer my post.
