I really don't know what is this?
I have finished my translation and I am going to save the document as a Word file, so I go to "Save as" I select docx... and I get a severe error in a Window, that says this:

Error: A name cannot start with the character '

deleting the comments solve the problem Sep 2, 2017

I have solved the problem, just deleting all the comments inside the trados file, saving the SDLXLIFF file, and then, saving as Word
It worked fine. Seems to be this is a problem (a bug) from Trados, and happens only the comments.
I hope next version solve this issue.
