I have an .INX file to translate and I'm using Trados Studio 2009 (most up-to-date version). Translation went well but now I cannot generate/save the target files. Instead I get error message "Failed to save target content: Resource (tag) with ID '' has no translatable items at Control ID '"

Does anyone know a solution for this?

Thanks in avance.

Did you run a VERIFY? Mar 27, 2011

This is probably due to a error in the tags (missing, incomplete, etc.)

Run the verifier (F8) to find out in which segment the error lies and correct it.

Yes and found a solution Mar 27, 2011

Yes, I did run Verify alreay earlier. There was an untranslated segment on purpose - in original a German sentence split into many segments with a bulleted list in the middle and all the verbs after the list... Impossible to translate properly into Finnish. So the translation will now have a "." in a separate row. And I can generate the target translation.

Thanks for the advice, it was almost too simpleicon_wink.gif

had same problem Jan 14, 2012

I had the same problem just now. Just adding some dummy text to all untranslated segments fixed it.
