I've got a problem with word docs, when I open saved file another blank word document open simultaneously with that, I'm just closing it. But the problem is that when I sent the translation to the agency they encountered the same problem. Two days ago I installed Trados - as I'm completely new to it I think I have done something wrong!
Any help would be appreciated!!!

Trados Jul 5, 2012

Actually, I cannot say that only you have an issue here. I get normal.dotm problems all the time when I use Trados, but my clients do not have problems with docs that I send to them. That is the strange part in your case.

Try the following Jul 5, 2012

There may be a problem already in the source file. Therefore, I suggest that you try the following:
1. Open MS Word
2. Click on the "Open" button
3. Browse to the source file, but don't open it by double-clicking the file icon
4. Instead, click the small arrow in the "Open" button in the bottom-right part of the dialog box
5. Select "Open & Repair"
6. Save the repaired file as two different versions of Word
7. Use your updated translation memory to re-translate the new source files
8. See if the problem persists.

I hope this helps?
