Dear colleagues,
I have recently updated my Trados Studio to SP3. I have now first time since then translated project containing IDML file. After I have finished the translation I wanted to finalize the project and I got the message Missing '' reference tag within the segment ID". Please run the Tag Verification to see the details." I did run the Tag Verification (F8) and it finds no errors whatsoever.

I've tried to save my translation via "Save Target as" option but I get the same error.

I am now in the situation where I cannot save my work. I am pretty sure this is not problem with tag but some other bug. Did anyone had this mistake so far? How did you fix it?

I have even tried to create new project and retranslate using same TM, but I got the same message. I am starting to think this must be error of the source file. Could that be?

Many thanks!

Warm regards!

I'm getting the same message with Studio 2014 Dec 20, 2014

Now I cannot save my target file. I've done a lot of searching to figure out how to do this.

The exact error message is: Failed to save target content: Extra '' reference tag within the segment ID ". Please run the Tag Verification to see details.

Can anyone offer any advice?
