I'm sorry if this has already been covered, but I didn't find it in a forum search.

I am trying to translate ppt files using Tageditor (Trados 2007, Windows XP). I translate the files, then "save as target" and overwrite the existing file. When I open the file in PowerPoint, the file is blank! Just empty text boxes. But I know my translation is in my TM because I checked using the concordance feature.
This is a long project consisting of many short ppt docs, so I would really like to be able to use my TM. Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance

Clean it Oct 8, 2007

Dear Mara,

Why don´t you try cleaning the file with Workbench. It might work, but make a copy first, just in case.
This procedure works with xml files, I have never tried with ppt though.
Regards,
Marina

Overwrite Nov 19, 2007

Don't overwrite the existing file, just create another one instead, in case you lose you work. Overwrite will destroy the original file. Only delete files when you're absolutley sure.
