Hello All,
I am having SDL Trados 2015 corporate version.

While doing "save target as" after completion of the translation I am able to convert the file in ".doc" format, but this cannot be opened.
It gives me message :
The name in the end tag of the element must match the element type in the start tag.
Location: Part:/word/document.xml, Line:2, column 6921

It would be really helpful, if you could suggest me, what to do?
This is bit urgent

Thanks ! Jun 30, 2016

Hello sdl_roman ,

Thanks a lot for your prompt reply.
As mentioned by you; I have contacted the local SDL-person.
And the issue has been sorted ot.

While translating the file; some of the tags in the target section got disabled/deleted unintentionally by me.icon_frown.gif

But now, everything is OK.

Thanks once again.
