I just activated SDL 2007 freelance suite on my new system. Now the problem is that workbench is not taking any new translation that I am entering. Whenever I open a new segment, enter the translation in it and then close the segment, the translated part disappears. I can see only the source text again. Also when I open that segment again to see if it has been saved in TM or not, it is not there in TM also. I don't know where the translated text goes. Its a very strange problem and I could find no solution to it. I even uninstalled the software and installed again. But that also didn't help.

I have to deliver a project urgently. Ant help would be appreciated.

I am not 100% sure if I understand the problem, but for the disappearing translated text, try this: Go in the Word file to tools - options - hidden text. See if that option is marked. If not, mark it.
