Hi there. Here comes a user of SDL Trados 2007 Workbench in trouble.

Yeah, I also use Trados Studio 2014, but for practical reasons I prefer to go on using the old Workbench. Which reasons? Well, a very long DOC file, full of terribly formatted paragraphs. By using the old Workbench you still have the possibility of editing paragraph-by-paragraph while at the same time translating segment by segment.

And here comes the problem, with a screenshot for you to understand:

This happens when pressing "Next" or whatever button to go on with the next segment. And this is very embarrassing, hyphen + curly brackets + hyphen. You have to solve this every time it happens, as it does not allow you to go on.

Any idea...?

Paragraph end mark in your Word files Feb 8, 2017

Fabio, the problem most probably is due to the lack of a paragraph end mark at the end of each paragraph in your Word file. You can do the following.

- Open your Word file.
- Go to Word Options > Display. Check Paragraph marks.
- Go to the end of each paragraph in your document. You should see a paragraph mark (¶). If it's missing, you will need to hit enter. You might need to replace the existing ending of the paragraph, for example ·········· .
- Save your word file.
- Launch Workbench and retry your translation.

Hope this helps!
Eduardo García
