Hi, I have a 5000 segment text (each segment only has a max. of 3 words), it was sent for bilingual review. Now I cant re-import the text and update the Trados file. There must be a better way than having to copy each line out of the reviewed text and paste it into Trados - That would take hours!! I am new to Trados and would really appreciate some help!!
Why can't you import it back? Are you seeing any error messages? If you can explain the steps you've followed and possibly share a screenshot of what you're seeing, the Community will be able to help you better.
Hi Nora, thanks for replying. it says things like "Multiple paragraphs detected in segment #128 ". I even tried making a new file for external review, copying the reviewed target text into the target segment, then re-importing it - this works without an error message, but the newly inserted text does not appear in the SDL file :-/
Is there no way just to copy the target text that I have in the word file and copy/paste it into the SDL doc?
Hi Stephen Tighe
Studio uses XML in its Word review files, and I vaguely remember you can mess it up by inserting hard returns (paragraph marks) into the segments. (Not 100% what exactly does it.)
As you can see, the table in the Word file does not contain any paragraph marks after it is exported:
If you insert a hard return, it looks like this in Word:
When I tried to import this file, I got the same error as you did.
I tried to just remove the offending paragraph mark, and I was able to import the review file normally again.
Does that work for you?
Hi Daniel, Tahnks for getting in touch! I cant see any returns marks in the affected paragraphs, do yo maybe have any other ideas.
This time i was able to import the file but the changes did show up in the target segments in trados !
This document i am trying to import is a normal .docx file. should I change the format?
Don't change the format, if you mess with that you will definitely lose the ability to import the file. This article might be worth a read as it is quite a sensitive process:
What do you mean by "normal .docx file"?Do you mean it's NOT the "Word for bilingual review" special format created by Studio?
If not, then you would of course NOT be able to import that file to Studio...
I am sure Stephen was just referring to the file extension.
