I'm working on a 4-part project, where there are 6 files in each part, one main Word file and 5 appendixes. I merged the files into one and alle looked well. But one of the appendixes, a Word table, is not translated, though in Editor all is translated and confirmed. In the Document only the first cell is translated, the rest left in the source language.
I translated again the single document, but the same result!

I had to copy the translations by hand from the External Review file.

The same happens for the other parts of my project, in every part the same appendix is not translated.

Any explanation for this?

Ideas for a solution. Mar 4, 2016

I suspect this appendix includes a bug that makes some adverse influence on the Studio operation.

Try to change the appendix format into another format: DOCX, RTF, ODT, XML etc. - whichever is compatible with Studio 2015, and translate thereafter.

Should this solution not work, I would convert this appendix into PDF, and then, OCR the file with FineReader
in order to produce DOC or DOCX file. Hoping that such double processing would kill any bug that impedes your work.

The third - and most time-consuming - method would consist in printing the file, OCRing the printout (FineReader as above), and saving the output in a Studio-copatible format.

HTH

Another possible cause Mar 4, 2016

Appendices often contain autotext. Some standard sections may include autofill addresses, banking details, etc. Maybe this is what causes such behavior?

Both methods work, either copy text to new docx and save or save from doc to docx. Hope I remember next time this trick.
