Hello everyone, I have recently started using Trados 2014 and I currently have a translation of a lengthy MS Word document to be delivered in three parts, each one on a deadline, so that I will need to save the .docx target three times: the problem is that Trados won’t let me do that before I have fixed all the tags in the target, but fixing all of them now would be rather a time-consuming work, because I would have to spend my time on the segments I don’t have to translate right now. Is there a way to force the software to save the incomplete target? Thank you in advance.

Copy source to target or clear target segment May 4, 2014

Your document should save OK even if two thirds has empty target segments.

If it doesn't save and you're getting a tag error message, you need to correct the errors in the segments you've translated up until now.

If you've made changes to the untranslated segments and there are tag errors, it might be faster to copy the source segments to the untranslated target segments or just clear them. To do this, click in the left number column in the first untranslated segment, scroll to the end of the file, and shift+left mouse click in the last untranslated segment.
With all untranslated segments selected, now right click and select "copy source to target" or "clear target segment".
