Hi everybody,
I am having problems when translating with trados in documents with cross-references.
I get the message (Error! La autoreferencia al marcador no es válida)when accepting a segment after translating it...this is an example of what I get:
Translation: La barra de herramienta personalizable se agrega a la pestaña Toolsbars y se muestra como una barra de herramientas vacía en la pantalla principal (¡Error! La autoreferencia al marcador no es válida.).
I cut and paste the gray segment (cross-reference) into the segment translated before Alt + ...what am I doing wrong? any help will be greatly appreciated.

What versions are you using? Mar 5, 2005

Hi Lida!

What is your exact Trados build number (in workbench, go to -> Help, -> About, there should be a longish number at the top of that window.

What operating system are you using and what version of windows?

The more information you give us, the more we can help you.
