Hi gacha Jan 19, 2008

Try cleaning the ttx in Workbench, it might help, but make a copy of the file first.

Create a new ttx file. Jan 19, 2008

You may using the current PPT file to create a new TTX file. Then using your current TM to translate it. It can be fininished almost immediately.

Then you may save the new TTX as a PPT.

Good Luck.
