Translating a table with Transit

Hi! Transit translates a table line by line and it seems to me it looks confusing:

I am offered to translate:
Gerät läuft nicht an Netzstromversorgung Anderes Elektrogerät einstecken, unterbrochen Funktion prüfen Netzkabel oder Stecker defektVon Elektrofachkraft prüfen und gegebenenfalls ersetzen lassen

Surely it should run:
one cell:
Gerät läuft nicht an

another cell:
Netzstromversorgung unterbrochen

Any advice how to cope with that?

According to my understanding, the text consists of five sentences copied cell by cell from (I guess) one line of a troubleshooting table.

Originally, the table could contain cells merged vertically, that's why sentence parts could be put in a wrong order. Transit sometimes makes errors like this. I can't divide the text into sentences without any doubt.

I would ask the client to send me the original file (pdf, doc, whatever) to make sure how the sentences look. Another option is have the table file converted anew to the Transit file.
