Hello

I have two problems with Trados 2011.

I am unable to save the target as a Word file, or better it saves it but then I am unable to open the file.
I get a message saying that it is "Impossible to open the XML file filename.docx because of problems with the content or because of the filename" when there is nothing wrong with the filename.

When I couldn't save the file I tried copying the content and pasting it to a Word file but I am also unable to do this.
It used to work but for some reason doesn't anymore.

I have seen suggestions to close Trados to clear the problem but obviously I don't want to risk losing my translation.

Does anyone know how to get over this/these problems?

Thanks in advance.

Marisa

Word version Aug 12, 2013

Hi,

Which version of Word are you using? I've encountered a similar issue with Word 2007, so I've opened the same file with Word 2010 64-bit and that fixed the issue.

What is the error message you're getting?

HTH,

Bernard

Copying from Trados 2011 Aug 12, 2013

Hello Bernard

Thanks for your suggestion.
Sorry, I should has mentioned the version: I'm using Word 2011 for Mac.
The error message is in my original post.

Do you have any idea why I can't copy out of Trados, as that has nothing to do with Word?

Marisa

Cheers,
