I recently translated a html file in Trados Studio 2015, confirmed all segments, saved the target file en delivered it to my client. They just got back to me saying that upon opening the file I sent they can only see one short bit of target text. I checked: they're right. I also opened the source file in both Firefox and Internet Explorer and guess what: there's only the same short bit of text, source text, obviously. Fortunately, I can still copy the target text and paste in into a Word file, but I'd prefer to send my client a usable html file.

So, in short, the complete surce and target texts exist in Trados, but apparently only part of the source text seems to exist in my browser.
Does anyone recognize this situation?
Does anyone have an explanation or a solution?

Is it gone or just invisible? Mar 14, 2017

Hi Joop,

have you right-clicked and then clicked on something like "show source" in your browser to check if the text is in theory still there and maybe just cut off by some incorrect markup, or really totally gone?

(Alternatively, you can also open the HTML file in something like Textpad, you don't have to do this in a browser.)

Thanks Ricki,

Like I said, the translation exists and is visible in Studio. It is not visible in my browsers, but is is in textpad (with more formatting codes than text).
