I have got the following issue:

The translation company converted the file from pdf into word. Then the translation company made some changes to the word file.

Now i try to add this file to the trados project, but it displays the error "scan". In this case I usually copy ctrl+A the full text and paste it in a new word file. This way the file would upload OK.

But, in this case there some changes to the formatting, when I copy the full text from one word file to a different one.

Is there any other solution.

I tried to save the file under a different name, but it would not upload still.

Clear formatting Sep 10, 2014

Use the "clear formatting" function or save as .docx instead of .doc.

"Open and repair" Sep 10, 2014

Andrew,
You might want to give a try to the following:
In Word, File > Open. A dialog opens. Click on the little arrow on the right of the "Open" button of the dialog and you will find the option "Open and repair".
It might do the trick.
Good luck!
