It gives error msg. Failed to save target content. "w" is an undeclared name space. Line 1, position 2.

It sounds simple, however I cannot see any "w" in line 1, position 2 when I have the window open and I am translating it.

What can I do? Tks!

Word file? Jun 18, 2013

Is this a Word file? If so, save it as a .docx if a .doc or vice versa and retranslate using the same TM.

It looks a similar behavior was reported in the past:

If your source file is *.doc or *.docx, I can advise to try doing a repair - and afterwards you can use pre-translate as Hazel previously suggested.

In order to repair your document:
Open a blank Word document -> click on the Office button or File ( depending on your version of MS Office ) -> select Open -> browse for your file -> select Open and Repair -> try saving this file as "test" and try using this file in SDL Trados Studio.

Hope this helps,
