Dear all,

There's one of the files from a project I am working on that my Trados 2017 analyses as having "0" words, when MS Word reads 708 words. My client is able to analyse it with Trados, and he counts 722 words. It must be some settings in File Type for Word 2016 that I'd have to adjust, but I don't know what. The file contained two columns, one for the source and another for the target, ant the source was copied into the target columns when I received from the client. I deleted the target columns to do my own analysis, and only one columns remained.
I notice that there are some tags such as this: \pxi-3,l3,t3;

Can anyone help? I'll end up translating it with Memsource, as I was able to generate the bilingual file there, without any problem, but I'd like to solve this for the future.

Kind regards,
