Probably a later version of InDesign not fully supported by your version of Trados.

See here:

There are some "best practices" to avoid problems, such as:
1. Ask your client to remove any soft returns, styles and embedded graphics before creating the INX file
2. Before you start translating, try to re-export the INX file you opened in TagEditor to see whether an export will be possible after you're finished with the translation. If the untranslated file does not export, something is wrong and you shouldn't even start translating.
3. Avoid shrinking and expanding segments
4. Do not leave the space between any pair of tags empty (insert at least a space or a fullstop)

Thank you, but the problem is that even if i have original file, and everithing is ok, but the translated ttx file received for editing cannot be saved to inx file. Anyway, I will do it with the original file, just wondering, if there can be some solution of the problem.

I would try TTXpress

Read carefully the link I posted. Inx files cause havoc in Trados (for example your previous problem was due to a soft return).

I tried, but I cannot find TTXpress toolbar in MS Word, the only additional toolbars i have are for Trados only.
