I wonder how to get the changes from the review file into the file in Studio 2011.
I exported for review into a docx-file, which I proofread in Word. Editing in Word is so much more comfortable than in Studio. But when I import this changed file back into Studio, I get 2000+ warnings "This segment was not updated because the content of segment was changed since it was exported for external review".
I do not understand this. The purpose of review is to make changes.
All changes I made in Word are lost after import. What am I doing wrong?

The reason was, that I had changed the xliff-File in Studio after export to external review. I had changed the status of all segments into Translated.
Now I exported again and copied the edited target column from the edited file to the new export file and Updated again, and now all changes are in my file in Studio too. All is well.

Try the SDL XLIFF Converter for MS Office Nov 13, 2012

Hi, you could try the SDL XLIFF Converter for MS Office, which is another way to import and export the changes. I remember reading that it's less sensitive than the built-in function, so it might work. Here are some details:

Hope this helps,

P.s. The same issue came up here:
