You already have your translations in the TM so they aren't gone. What you could do is:

1. Run a QA checking tags in Studio and fixing any errors.
2. Convert the document to another Word format (e.g. doc > docx or rtf), create a temporary project with your existing TM. Apply the translations and see if you can generate a target file.
3. You can also try restarting your computer.
