My latest proofreading project contains two Word files translated in workbench. 1st problem, when setting up the project it initially told me the files were not translatable because the appropriate file type was not available. This surprised me, because they were both .docs
Then I noticed that there was an additional file type that was not active "SDL Trados Translator's Workbench" which covers .doc and docx. My first thought was why on earth were formats like ppt, html, xls automatically selected when opening a project with Word documents, but not Workbench files? Maybe someone can enlighten me on this.
After adding the missing file type, I am still stuck. Only one of the two files is recognised by Studio as a workbench files and the other one will still not process as Studio believes it to be a Word 2000-2003 file (giving the above error message). There is no option to manually change the file type identifier - what can I do? I have tried saving the file as an RTF and that has not helped.
Incidentally, this not the first problem I have had with Word and Studio 2011. There seems to be some glitch in there somewhere.
If they are .doc, try to save them as .docx. It worked for me once, I hope it works for you.
