Hello everyone

I am having problems when saving a target file in Word when using Studio 09. I am getting the following message:

Failed to save target content: The "pageitem" start tag on line 1 does not match the end tag of "P". Line 25, position 120.

However, when I go to that segment and change it, even leaving it black or copying the source text into the target (just to try and see if it works) it is still not saving the target file and the same error appears.

Does anybody know how to fix this, please?

Many thanks in advance!

Try opening the file in the Editor and press F8. This may help you identify the issue. If it doesn't try opening the original source file again and pretranslating against your TM and then save the target.

If it still doesn't work try opening the source file again and immediately save the target even though it is not translated. Does this work?

If not, and if you are allowed, send me the fully translated sdlxliff and the original source file and I'll take a look for you. It may be a problem that was in 2009 but resolved in 2011 and I can recover your translation fairly easily.
