I have a big problem with Studio 2011. I got several pre-translated bilingual files from my client. I translated them all and now can't save the target files. I get the following message:

Zieltext konnte nicht gespeichert werden: Platzhalter wurde verschoben. Führen Sie die Tagprüfung aus, um weitere Einzelheiten zu erfahren

which means: target file cannot be saved. Placeholders was moved. Run tag test to find out further details.

I did run the tag test, fixed the tag problems and still cannot save the target files.

Can anybody help?

Studio 2011 SP2: Korean Target saving as Word 2003 Jul 23, 2012

Just upgraded to 2011 from 2009. When saving the target (Korean language) as Word 2003 (because the source file is Word 2003) in the Editor screen, the Korean characters are not properly displayed in the Word 2003 file. No problem when the source file is Word 2007.

Isn't there a feature in Studio 2011 to "save up" the Target to Word 2007? It seems there is ONLY ONE WAY to save the Target as - that is, the same file type as the source file.

Same "cannot save target file" problem in Studio 2011. Mar 17, 2014

Only my error messages say:

1: "Failed to save target content: An error occurred while converting fields back to Microsoft Word format: Possible field(s) deletion; and,

2. "Failed to save target content: An error occurred while writing the document".

I've tried everything to remedy the problem. Everything. Too much to list here.

I would be very grateful for some assistance with this.
