Dear all,
I’m trying to work out why some target segments in memoQ XLIFFs for PPT/DOCX files are being truncated during the export from Studio 2015 SR2, and hoping somebody here may be able to help.
The background is that our team uses Studio 2015 to translate MQXLIFFs that have been prepared in memoQ 2014 (version 7.5.63). Normally the import/export process between memoQ and Studio works absolutely fine for us, but a few times recently, some text has been truncated during the export from Studio back to the original MQXLIFF, ready to import back into memoQ. The problem appears to be in Studio rather than memoQ. It’s usually the final part of a long segment containing lots of tags. All the tags and text are present and correct when viewed in the Studio Editor (and no extra tags have been added by mistake), but in the exported MQXLIFF, the final pair of tags - and more importantly, the translated text in between – is missing. We have tested this on 2 different computers (running the same software versions) and exactly the same thing happens.
Has anybody here had any similar experiences, and/or does anybody have any idea what could be causing this?
Thanks and all the best,

Hello Walter,

Thanks very much for your suggestion. I have just joined and saw that somebody else has posted on the SDL Community this afternoon with what appears to be a very similar issue to mine:


Paul Filkin has replied so I'll keep an eye on that thread as well.

Thanks again!
