G'day everyone

I exported SDLXLIFF files to DOCX using the "Bilingual Review" feature, then edited the DOCX files in Word 2010, and then imported the DOCX files back into Trados. However, tags were imported as plain text. I checked the style of the tags in MS Word, and they are definitely "Tag", and I did not move the tags around. Why would this happen? How can I avoid it (i.e. how can I make Trados 2015 import the tags as tags)?

The only odd thing in this project is that the files are IDML.SDLXLIFF, and I get a "dependency not found" error message whenever I deal with the files. I also got that warning when I imported from Bilingual Review. However, it's not my fault that the dependency file is not found... so that shouldn't matter, right? The SDLXLIFF files are from a package sent my a client.

This is what it looks like after importing the Bilingual Review file:

Any ideas what I can do?
