Hi all,

I'm having a problem with Trados 2011 which is driving me crazy, I am absolutely clueless about how to solve this after having tried any possible solution.

I have translated an IDML file (a manual), but I can not save it because of a "missing tag error":

Now the point is there is no tag in the segment it refers to, but however, even copying and pasting the source line into target line, nothing changes. I regularly translate IDML files and this is the first time this happens. I've also tried to open the source file in InDesign and save it again, then processing it again in Trados, still nothing changes.

If I run the Tag verification, it states that:

Now, aside from the idiotic impossibility of skipping tag issues and at least save the file to, eventually, fix it manually... has anyone a clue on how I can solve this and save the file?

Thanks in advance!

P.s.: I can save the bilingual file, the project file, export the TM and so on. I just can not save the target file. And I can not even save it deleting the line (to eventually add it later manually), it still prompts me to add that tag.

Couple of things that may help... Jun 1, 2013

...


  1. Open the IDML file again using OpenDocument and immediately try to save the target file (so don't translate)
  2. If it saves, then pre-translate the file and save it again. If it fails to save then double check your tags in the file
  3. If it doesn't save, then first of all make sure you have the latest updates installed and that you are also on SP2R. You can find the latest updates to SP2R here and there were some fixes for IDML : http://goo.gl/7WbPy
  4. Then open the file and repeat from 1.

If it still fails to save can you send me the fully translated SDLXLIFF and the original source IDML file?

Regards

Thanks! Jun 1, 2013

Hi Paul,

thank you really much for your reply - and sorry for the harshness of my post, I was really upset and late for delivery! However, eventually I sent the .sdlxliff file over to client and his CAT specialists were able to extract the target file, so the specific issue was solved. But I will now try your suggestions and see if they work - just to avoid this to happen again.
