But I did not delete, merge or divide any segments!! I am clueless. any ideas??

Run the verification... May 7, 2012

Hi Noha,

Try to run the verification first by pressing F8 when the file is open in the editor. This may find the problem and point you to the segment you need to address in oreder to resolve this.

If it doesn't, and if you can share the file with me (original source file and fully translated SDLXLIFF) then I'd be happy to help you with this?
