Hello,

I have a big problem with Page Maker which doesn't export all the content into txt, to use it in Tag Editor. Then because of this problem during the export, it dosn't allow me to import back from txt translated to Page Maker.

Do you know any tricks or solution to solve this problem? From now, I've tried to divise the Page Maker which contain various pages in various Page Maker of 1 page, and it seems to work better. But I still have sentences which are not translated, and I would like to find another solution which could be easier and faster.

I would appreciate a lot some help.
Thank you.

Are you using the Trados plugin? Apr 12, 2011

Which version of PageMaker are you using?
Is changing to InDesign maybe an option?
PageMaker is completly obsolete software now, so that you will not get any suport for it anywhere...

Page Maker 7.0 Apr 12, 2011

I'm using the PageMaker 7.0.
There is the Trados plugin into the software that I'm using to export and to import.
I know that InDesign would be a good solution, the problem is that I need to deliver PageMaker files and anything else, so I have to find a solution to fix the problem.

Thank you for your help anyway, if you have any other suggestion...

The files are unfortunately quite sensible Apr 12, 2011

When exporting, the tool should tell you, where it stops with error. If you could identify that text box and recreate it, that might help.
I remember having similar problem in the past due to a single text box and the only way to resolve was deleting it and placing the text completely new.
Unfortunately PageMaker is a pain somewhere...
No real solution for this problem. I try to avoid PM if only possible.
