Bilingual DOC file in Studio 2014 - cannot see untranslated segments

Hello, I have been using Trados Workbench 2007 and now am investigating SDL Studio 2014 before purchase, so some things are rather difficult for me to grasp, especially working with legacy files.
I guess my question is rather silly, but I can't find the solution:
The client has given me a bilingual pretranslated DOC file, so some sentences have been pretranslated, others have been not.
When I select "Translate single document" to edit pretranslated segments and translate unntranslated ones, the editor shows me only pretranslated segments (in "All segments" review mode). If I set the option"Not translated" in the "Review" window , the editor shows no segments at all, but at the same time the info says that only 60% of the document is translated.

What do I need to do to see all segments?

I guess the solution is very simple, but I haven't found it in the Migration guide.

Thank you!

You need to make sure that the file is fully segmented. Your client could do this easily when they prepare the file just by checking on box "Segment unknown sentences".

Thank you very much! So segmenting is the problem. I guess I can segment the rest of the document myself with Trados Workbench or Studio 2014 when the client hasn't done it.
Thanks again!
