Hello everyoneicon_smile.gif

I have recently reorganised folders in my PC and now I cannot update translated file in Wordfast. I am using a source Word document with the latest demo version of Wordfast Pro.

When I try to save the translated file I get this message: "Checksum failed. Original file could not be found it's either renamed or changed. Would you like to locate it by yourself?"

I follow the suggested steps until I get this other message: "Error while saving file. There was a problem aligning document".

I go on and then I get this last message: "Error while saving file. Aspose failed to read file content. Please check log for more details."

To top it all, this process made the existing translated file disappear and is now replaced by an empty word document (I did manage to retrieve a copy from a previous version and saved it elsewhere, just in case).

Although I changed folder location, all files are in the same folder and have not been renamed.

How can I solve this or what can be done to prevent this from happening?

Thank you so much for your help!

Saves as .doc (instead of .doc) Oct 15, 2015

Hello,

I experienced the same problem today and managed to solve it by renaming the source file (without spaces) and saving it as a .doc (instead of .docx).

I ran the TM and the export went smoothly.

Hope this can help someoneicon_smile.gif
