I had a Word file to translate and after tying unsuccessfully to translate it using Studio 2014, I went back to Trados and translated it with TagEDitor. I have finished the translation but can't convert it back to Word 'I get a message "Erreur de l'application"). I even tried to use Studio to translate the ttx file, but it freezes before it can be opened. Has someone had this problem before. I nave to deliver the job this morning

original document may be the problem Nov 20, 2017

You might trying Open and Repair and resave the original document. Or there might be some character or graphic that Trados can't work with, so you can just remove that, save as a different document, and try again with a new project, and it will populate your translated segments. Or try saving the original in a different format, such as .doc, .txt or .rtf and make a new project.

Hint: If you can do a preview in Trados, then it should Save Target. If you can't, then you need to figure out what to do with the original document.
