I am unsure why this is happening. I have translated and verified translations in Trados 2011 Studio Freelancer, but each time I SAVE to TARGET in word or pdf it only spits out part of the translation. The final 2/3 of the translated document only appears in the source French!!!!

Please inform. This is driving me crazy. Thanks SDL for yet another glitchy headache!

Any help on this is appreciated.

Can I see the file? Dec 12, 2011


If you can send me the sdlxliff file you have translated and the original sopurce file I'd be happy to take a look and see if I can help?

Frustration!!!! Dec 13, 2011

Being unable to save your work and send it to the customer after working long and tiring hours on a job is the most frustrating thing about Trados. I can see that a large number of messages in this forum narrate the woes of translators from all over the world precisely regarding this problem. I wonder if Trados or some other party should offer a debugging tool to identify the source of problem that is preventing the translated version from being saved.
