Here's what you can do

You open again the original file and start opening segments, the translation has to be there.

Otherwise you can do : Fix document on TRADOS menu displayed on WORD programme or Alt+Ctrl+U (if that is your case)

Please tell if I could help

Yes I did it in a such way. Oct 7, 2006

I started my translation from the beginning. Every translated sentence was in my workbanch base so I could perform the process again quite quickly. But when I came to the point of ERROR everything happened again. An error occured. So I deleted the last sentences and it was OK. I realised that I missed a tag or some tags. I am a beginner in TRADOS and I don't have knowledge enough about tags. But now I take care about the tags and everything is OK. A guy from Germany has helped me on a Polish forum where I asked the same question. However thank you very much Maria for your help too. Rafal

Try this way Oct 8, 2006

First, save the doc file as an rtf file. Then run clean-up in workbench. Now you can open the rtf file and translate.

why to save the file in .rtf not .doc? Oct 12, 2006

when I will choose rtf format my target translation will not be the same like in word, and what about pictures which are in the source .doc file?
