Mismatch with source detected - Cannot create target document
Thread poster: Kevindp
Feb 21, 2012

Dear all,

I've got some files that seem to be giving me this error when I'm trying to "save target as" and I can't seem to find why.

The message is : "Failed to save target content. Mismatch with source detected. Unable to create target document".

The target file I try to save is a ppt file.

Anybody got a clue what this could be?

Kind regards,

Hi Kevin,

Check that all tags are in their correct position. As far as the ttx file is concerned, if the ttx file was sent to you, maybe the ppt file (you have) was modified after creating the ttx bilingual file. In this case, there are two possibilities:

1. Clean up the ttx file and pre-translate the original ppt file with TM.
2. Ask the client for the ppt original.

I think the best option is the first one.
