Hello,
Please help - urgent.
I exported Pagemaker 7 file through Storycollector - Trados 6. Translated in Tageditor and then attempted to import back. I got error message: Unable to import translated text.

How depressing! All the work for nothing!
Other files imported ok.
Best regards,

I don't know if this can be of help in your case. 4 years ago, when I tried to reimport my first catalogues from Trados into PageMaker, there was no way to reimport the text (I had exported it with Story collector). After some hours I found what was the solution in my case.
I had tried to re-import in some "untouched" files, those stored in a source directory of mine. But that was an error. To be able to reimport, I had to export again the text (just for the procedure, I did not use it again that text), **SAVE the Page Maker file when closing after the export** and then use that PageMaker file (saved after the export process)for reimporting my translation.
I found that absolutely weird and not mentioned anywhere.
Some months later it happened again, and before I recalled of my solution, I lost some hours...

ciao
Ilde

Try to split the "story file" with your text editor... Mar 30, 2004

... into 3 or more batches. Then try to import the individuals batches again. Maybe you can import at least some stories back into PM.

3 years ago I used to use this method to import such defective files.

Warning:
- Work only with copies of your translated files!!!
