I am translating a PowerPoint presentation (2007) with Trados Sudio 2009.

Here is the situation I am confronted with:
- 57 slides have to be translated;
- the 8 first slides have already been translated and the translated segments are confirmed;
- I saved the target file to see how it looks like;
- Surprise! only 4 slides of the ones that are translated appear as translated in the target file. The other 4 remained in the source language.

I have deleted the xliff file and started again. It did not change anything: the 4 same slides remained in the source language.

Useless to say that I would be VERY, VERY happy to get your feedback about this!

Thanks in advance and kind regards,
