Dear All,

I first searched this forum but could not find an answer to this weird situation, so post it here.

I'm using TRADOS version: 6.5.5.438 to translate a ttx file. It seemed that the file was translated one sentence by somebody else and saved as a ttx. When I was translating the file, moving between segments, there prompted the message:


Failed to create component Trados.PowerPointParagraphIdentifier


As the translation could go on without any other problem, I simply ignored the message and finished the job.

But when I wanted to save the target as a PPT file, the message prompted again and refused to save. I tried to clean the file but also failed with the same message displayed in the status bar of the Clean up window.

Can anybody help me out with this please? I don't think my TRADOS missed anything. Is there a possibility that someone else used TRADOS 7 to save the ttx file and caused this problem?

Thanks in advance.

Same problem with Excel Sep 12, 2006

Hi, I also have version 7.0 and have the same problem but regarding Excel files. The comment I get is:

"Failed to Create component Trados. Excel.TagFormatter"

If I find out how to solve it I will let you know! It probably is applicable to all office.

Hi Marta,

The post was an old one. The problem was solved by using WordFast to translate the file instead, giving up the ttx file altogether. Recently I upgraded to SDLX and translating PowerPoint file is much more easier.
