Hi,

I´ve just translated a 10,000 document using Translator´s Workbench from SDL Trados 2007.

I have the bilingual document, but when I wan to clean up the file in order to deliver it to my client I receive an error message that says "The file could not be opened because it is not in Microsoft Word 2007 format".

I tried to change the format, but then I received another error message saying "This Microsoft Word 2007 document cannot be opened because it has track changes"


Please, help me out with this! I don´t have time to translate the whole document again and I need the clean file!

Thanks!

Kind Regards,

Track changes off Jul 29, 2011

Hi, Open your Word document and 'turn off' track changes.

Workbench will not clean a document if track changes are ON.

Let me know if it works.

Thanks, but how? Jul 29, 2011

I don´t seem to be able to do that, on microsoft 2007 you have a label for track changes, but there´s no way to disable it!.

Thanks!

Kind Regards

Another way aroung it Jul 29, 2011

Open your document;
Then:
Select ALL (Ctrl+T)
Go to Edit/Localize
Click on Plus
Click on Format and Type of letter
In the next window that opens, click on Hidden (it may be Concealed). Click on OK.
In the previous window that reopens click on Replace All


It should work.
It is important that ALL is selected

Good luck!
