Hi,

Lately, when I try to do a cleanup of a Word file (Word 2007) in Translator's Workbench, I get this error:

The target document cannot be created because the tag structure in the TagEditor document is invalid. File skipped!

a) Could this be, because I don't have any tag setting files enabled (empty Tag settings dialog)?

b) I also keep getting "Java Virtual machine" error. Could this be related?

Thanks for your help.

DOCX? Nov 8, 2011

If the documents have the .docx extension, save them in Word as .doc and try again. Trados 2007 doesn't clean .docx files and this seems to be the error it displays, if I remember correctly. I usually translate .docx files in Tag Editor.

Thanks so much, Adam. I can't believe I didn't think of that. I will change the setting in Word to always save as .doc.

Thanks again for your fast reply.

Hello Urska,
I would be careful about doing this. The DOCX document can have some functionalities not supported by earlier versions of Word.
