I am trying to import an rtf bilingual review text on Wordfast Pro and i get the message:
"Cannot locate the Parent file.
Possible causes:
1) The file is not an Offline file.
2) The Parent file is not present in the same directory, or has been renamed.
3) The Offline file is missing the custom document property WF-OfrtParentFilename.
If the document property is missing, use MS-Word to recreate the property as follows:
(File) > Prepare > Properties > Document Properties > Advanced Properties > Custom
(File) > Prepare > Properties > Custom
value=Copy of SNCF - CPS roulements1.doc.txml"
None of this means anything to me, what can I practically do?
