I translated three (3) files excel.
The first contained 148 rows, the second had 653 rows and the third more than 3 thousand. I saved the target documents at the beginning of the job but at the end, when I tried to save them again, Trados didn't save the two longest files and it gave me the following message:

Failed to save target content: Document structure error: Translated text length for Name: "Top Phrases" is longer than allowed 31 characters. Please change the text and try again

I tried to rename the file, although I didn't think that was the problem, and it didn't work. Now I don't know what to do.

Can anyone please help?

Thank

If you tried to rename the file by making it shorter (just name it using one character temporarily) and it didn't work, you can try using another copy of the file in question and run it through the project memory (not the main one).

another solution Nov 7, 2012

@Radian

thank you

I had tried to rename the file with one character and it was useless, however, I shortened the text in the row that contained the translation of the label at the end of every excel file (sheet1, sheet2, sheet3). This label was renamed and required translation, although a shorter one. It is a requirement of excel, not of Trados and it worked for one file, not for the other, in which there must be another mistake

Thank you once again

31 characters Nov 7, 2012

are the maximum lenght for the name of each worksheet at an Excel file. The only thing you should do is find the translation of the worksheet name and use only 31 characters (blank spaces are also counted as character).
