Hi,

I'm trying to prepare a new project for translation on Trados Studio 2009. The Word file I'm trying to translate can't be converted to a translatable format - the error message is that there are tracked changes which have not been accepted, but when I open it on Word there are no changes at all.

Any idea how I can fix this?
Thank you very much in advance.

Juliette

This is a (known) Word bug Apr 13, 2011

Try saving the file with a new name.
If not, try to save as DOCX and open that.
If not, save as rtf, close, close Word, restart, reopen and save as doc again.
If everything still does not help, use OpenOffice to open and save as doc.

Changing the settings to process non accepted changes Apr 13, 2011

Thanks, I didn't know about this bug. I've found a way round it by changing the settings of the project (Project settings/File Types/Microsoft Word 2007-2010/other settings/Process documents with non accepted or rejected changes), but I'll try this next time.

"Other settings"? May 5, 2016

I can't find "other settings" in file types. Is this on Studio 2011? Thanks!
