When I try to approve the segment, it gives me an error claiming tag pair removed.

Why should it happen in the first place?

All help will much appreciated.

Word from OCR? Nov 18, 2011

Please just check the formatting in the source file. Most certainly it is an OCRed Word or a converted PDF. The formatting of such must be corrected before you start.
In Word file press CTRL+A, CTRL+D, go to S´Character spacing tab, set Scale to 100% and spacing to Normal.
Save the file, open again in SDL Trados.

For the future please try to learn something about formatting to be able to understand why that happens.

You are right about the converted PDF Nov 18, 2011

It is text which I have copied from a PDF file to Microsoft Office.
Apologies for not mentioning it.

I tried opening the PDF through Trados, though it resulted with backward sentences and words.

I have also tried what you said but it hasn't worked for me.

Is it even possible for Trados to properly process a PDF file which was written in MS and was copied to Acrobat Reader?

Excuse me for my ignorance I have little experience with SDL Trad
