Hi all -

I just translated a PPT document, not that huge, but am unable to open the translated file ("error accessing the file..." with no further detail). I have tried a new save, with no success.

I work in Office 08 for Mac and have never run into this problem before. Who has a suggestion?

Yasmin, are you out there

Joy

Dear Joy,

Could you please open the source PPT in PowerPoint for Mac and check if there is any suspicious graphic; most likely, you would receive an error message about it. Please have a look here:

You can adjust or remove it, re-open the PPT file in Wordfast Pro, and pre-translate using the toolbar button Translate All. Then, try to Save Translated File again.

I hope this helps. Please let me know.

If the problem persists, please send me the three files to check.

Dear Shawn,

If the problem persists, please send me the source PPT + the TXML file to check.
