I have been translating a document with Trados 7 and everything was OK, but suddenly I got this error message and I can't proceed, because the segment won't open.

I've tried the "fix document" function but it didn't work.

Is there any possibility of solving this or do I have to start again and run the TM through all the segments. This would be really painful because there are a lot of tables and it takes a lot of time.

Any suggestions will be more than welcome!

TIA

Elisabete

Try this... Sep 25, 2007

Sometimes when I get an error message about RTF format I re-save the document as a .RTF and not a .DOC file, then try to clean it again - 9 times out of 10 it works, but I'm not sure if it will work with your particular error....good luck!

Thanks, Paul Sep 25, 2007

After receiving this error message, my word doc was closed automatically and when I reopened it again, I received a message saying that the document had been repaired

So, now is working. If it fails again, I hope not, but if it does I will certainly try your suggestion.

Many thanks for the quick reply!
