I have a Word file I am trying to open and it keeps saying it can not be opened as there are changes that have not been accepted or rejected. There are no changes to be reviewed. The client says there is something wrong with the setting and told me to change the .xml file. I did but still the same problem. Any ideas?
Ultimately the client needs a ttx bilingual and Word file. How can I translate the word file in Word/Workbench and convert/save it to TTX?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Did you accept all changes? Jan 5, 2013

Try to click Accept all and save the doc.

Yes I did accept changes although word claims there are no changes to review or accept... it refuses to open even with the change in the .xml file for filters.

Copy & paste Jan 5, 2013

to a new Word document. This method has already proven in the past.

Tried... did not work. Apparently the document was corrupt. Finally had a client manage to sort it out. Thank you.

Also worth remembering... Jan 5, 2013

... that Studio 2011 can open word documents with tracked changes and show them for translation. So when you get this issue maybe set the option here and see if it works:
