Hi all,

I realize that Studio is not the real issue here, but never the less I have a hard time creating my current task as a project in Trados.

I have received a .doc file, which opens as an ordinary word document, but when I want to save it to my PC, it presents itself as a .rtf file. No matter how I (successfully) try to save it as a word document, I always get the same error message whilst creating my project in Trados:

"The file usage was not changed to translatable, because no matching file type could be found [...]"

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hi Trine Apr 1, 2011

Just save it as RTF and open in Studio as RTF.

Chose explicitly DOC when saving Apr 1, 2011

Change the file type, not just name.
The extension doc is misleading here.
Or open file in OpenOffice and save as doc from there.
You could also use the free compatibility pack for Office 2003 and save as docx, reopen and save as doc.

I should have mentioned this Apr 1, 2011

but my document contains a lot of tables etc., and the layout gets pretty ugly with the .rtf format...
