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.

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.
