Hello

Wondering if anyone can shed any light?

Trying to put an 8k document into Studio 2009, the document is clean, no track changes to accept.

However, when I come to running the project to get things started, I receive the following error message: This file cannot be converted because it contains tracked changes that have not been accepted or rejected.

I have tried creating a new document, copying and pasting the content but to no avail.

I've checked everywhere, but there are zero track changes!

Thanks in advance.

Stéph

Sometimes the track changes you can't see. Try accepting all changes and then saving to a new file. If that doesn't work, if it is a .doc save it to .docx or vice versa. This has always worked for me.

To be traipsing through forums, if you have a lin that'd be great, but I'm on a tight schedule.

Another idea Nov 17, 2011

Switch tracking changes on. Make a few changes. Now choose Accept all changes. This helps sometimes.

Have turned it on and off, and clicked accept all changes, there aren't any to accept or reject.

Well, I took about 30 seconds to enter +tracked +changes in the search box in the SDL Trados support forum and I found this thread:
http://www.proz.com/forum/sdl_trados_support/196645-trados_studio_2009_cant_convert_word_doc_to_translatable_format.html
It provides 3 possible solutions to your problem.

So I've done all the traipsing for you.

Thanks. Went into Project settings, then clicked Process documents with non accepted track changes.

Project settings/File Types/Microsoft Word 2007-2010/other settings/Process documents with non accepted or rejected changes

Check the box, and problem (theoretically) solved.
