We are having a problem converting back to the original file after running the tag editor. The error message says "the worksheet contains a function. therefore the sheet name could not be changed for the follwing sheet." Any and all quick help would be greatly appreciated!!

Excel file conversion from TagEditor by using SDLX etc. Nov 30, 2007

I have had a number of troubles converting files from TagEditor. I managed in a number of ways [based on specific problem]
1. Do translation in TagEditor again. It is easy since the TM has been updated even file conversion fails.
2. Do translation in SDLX by using Trados TM file. This is easy for SDLX Trados 2006 or later.
3. Copy target texts from TagEditor and paste into Excel file [if the Excel file is not too large/not too complicated].
4. Create TagEditor from source Excel file. Convert to SDLX edit file. Translate with the same TM and convert back to TagEditor. Use Workbench to clean the file back into Excel file.
5. If procedures fail, run QA Check in TagEditor for any missing tags etc.
6. Translate Excel file by using the same TM and Wordfast.
7. Translate Excel file by using the same TM and Trados T-Windows fof Clipboard.

Workbench Nov 30, 2007


Have you tried cleaning it with Workbench?
Go to Tools > Clean up > Add ... and then Clean. Sometimes it works, but make a copy of the file first.

Thank You Nov 30, 2007

Thank you both. I will give it a try and see what happens. I am working with MS Office 2007 and Trados ver. 8. Should that matter? Thanks again!
