Hello!

All of a sudden I cannot open TU in SDL Trados 2007 Freelance. I work with Word 2003.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Have you.... Oct 25, 2007

- tried Fix Document?
- checked if you're using the right TM?
- checked if there isn't another TU open?

Yes, I have tried "Fix document". I created the TM for the project in question. No TU is open as I cannot open the first TU. And the error message says "No translation unit seems to be open".

I hope this help you further in recognizing my specific problem. It is urgent as always.

Thanks!

Angelica

A few links Oct 25, 2007

Hi,
the problem has been discussed before:

http://www.proz.com/topic/49732?start=0&float=

and some other threads.

Have you searched the forums?
What kind of document are you working on? Does it have tables, columns, any sort of special formatting?

If you open another document, does the problem occur as well?

What happens if you skip the first TU and proceed to the next?

I cannot find any specific solution right now, I'm sorry. I understand your urgency, try not to panic.
