I am trying to figure out how to translate InDesign files using Trados 6 TagEditor. I've heard from Trados that I can use "Story Collector for InDesign" to prepare the file. It was included in Trados 6 and Trados 6.5. I've found the Story Collector and prepared a .isc file. While I opened the .isc file in Trados 6 TagEditor, there was an error message like this: (35017): SSLex0105e: Invalid token, Line 175, Offset 163,

the story Collector has problems with automatic table of contents, if you don't use the actual version.
I think you can download the actual version from Translationzone or ask the support.

Another possibility are special chars in the text.

You should search for chars like , \\ ... in the text and on the master pages.

Another point are special chars in format names. You should rename all paragraph or char format names with special chars.

Hope it helps

I remember we had a problem with the TOC when we first prepared an .indd file for translation. Back then, we circumvented it by just deleting the TOC, re-exporting to .isc and "voilà!" everything worked just fine. Re-inserting the TOC is just a few mouse clicks, so the client had no problem with that.
