The directions for dealing with embedded files don't work for me. I converted the Word file to a zip file can't find anything in there other than the word file. There are no other files. I went to the source text and manually deleted all the files (which were just pictures) and re-uploaded it, to no avail. Every time I try to preview or convert my bilingual XLIFF as a word file I get an error message from Word telling me there are too many edits so I should save my work, and when I do that it tells me there's no memory or disk space and the save filed. I've spent days translating this file -- how do I get my finished product?
Could you please provide a step-by-step specification of what exactly you are trying to achieve? From your description, I am afraid I am not able to see what you are trying to do and what it is that does not work for you.
