Hello

I use SDL Trados 2014 and generally have no problems with it. I have just completed a translation of 18 pages. When I output the translation the first 12 pages are fine. Half way down page 13 the original French version is printed and not the English translation, this continues for the rest of the document.

I have not had this problem before even with very long documents. I have tried re-saving, reconfirming each section.

Does anyone have a solution for this.

Many thanks for any ideas.

Thank you - that worked Mar 31, 2016

Thank you very much Emma.

The workaround as stated wasn't a perfect fix. I had to directly copy the source for one section before and two after the issue. I then just had to type these in again without altering the formatting.

Very strange, but it works. Thank goodness!icon_smile.gif

Was it Word 2003 format? Mar 31, 2016

I had this with one doc-file. I had to save it as docx and translate this again.

Converted document Apr 1, 2016

Hello Heinrich

I have had trouble with 2003 and above documents before, specially if they have formatting. Before uploading them to SDL I always convert them to 1997-2003. This document is now fine though it is a .doc file.
