I get the above message when I try to create a project with a Word document that has been converted from a pdf by my client. I don't have the problem when I do my own conversion. I have several documents to translate and one of them is a complex document with 200 footnotes. I would like to use my client's converted file because it would save me a lot of time.
How can I identify this "unexpected content"?
Many thanks in advance,
Hi again Christine Mercier
Take a look here for a further method of dealing with this...
I hope it's not the footnotes that are causing the problem but if the above doesn't work, that is probably the problem...
There is a tool you can download to help with tidying up the content of a file:
Translator tools - Word
All the best,
Hi Christine Mercier
Did you try saving to a different version of Word already?
Try the following, presuming you have the same versions of Word and Studio as I do:
Open the document in Word. Save as Word 97-2003 (*.doc), giving it a different name so you know which it is.
In Studio, go to File>Options>Filetypes
If you can see Microsoft 97-2003 in the right-hand pane, untick it:
Then try to create a project with the .doc file to see if the change of file type sorts the problem.
If not, then, under File>Options>File Types>Microsoft 2000-2003, add the footnote mark that appears in your document, here:
See if you can then create a project this time with the .doc file.
If you can, then it is the footnotes causing the problem.
Let's see what happens there before I suggest anything more, and Paul will most likely be able to contribute something more appropriate to this problem.
