I am in the middle of a rush, Hebrew to English translation of word document in columns. Twice the translation has gotten stuck and says "no translation unit open", when the translation unit is open. Restarting the document is no help. What can I do? The client wants it in the same form. So, improvised formatting is not a solution.

Sometimes a tag is missing. Mark the open translation unit and cut it out. Fix the document [this is one of the Trados commands]. Retype the cut out sentence and open it normally, this should do the trick!
