Trados 2015 fails to save the target file. The error message says (in Russian):

Failure to save the target content: Extra tag '' in segment ".

When I run the Tag verification procedure, no errors come up. What do I do? I have a finished translation, but cannot save it.

I can't even understand what segment to look for.

create a new project Nov 20, 2017

Open your original document and show non-printing characters. If you don't find anything that looks unacceptable to Trados, then remove suspicious graphics (or non-suspicious, if you don't find anything suspicious) and Save As with a new name. Create a new project in Trados and it will populate with your translated segments. Then copy the graphics into your saved target document.
