Run "Verify" Dec 6, 2012

Hello Melissa --

First things first, in Studio's Editor view with the problem file open, click Tools ⇒ Verify or hit F8 to run Studio's built-in sanity checker. This should flag any problems with missing tags and the like. Without more detail, this strikes me as the most likely issue. Get back to us with any unresolvable issues you discover from this, and we can go from there.

Good luck,

-- Erik Anderson

Were you able to solve this problem? Dec 6, 2012

Hi Melissa,

I had the same problem as you yesterday when I spent hours working on a persegmented Trados file in Studio 2011 and at the end couldn't save the file back to its original format. I ran the QA Check and Studio gave me 108 errors! Since the deadline was looming, I decided to export the translated segments to a tmx file and re-process the file in Workbench. That was still faster than going through and correcting these QA errors.

The lesson I learned from this is, if I receive a Trados bilingual file next time, I will stick with Trados/Workbench to process this file.

In the meantime, I would like to know if other Studio users use Studio to process Trados bilingual files and how successful it has been for them.
