A MathType translation error-14 occurs when an equation has been set up in a manner that prevents proper conversion from MathType format to MathML. Often, but not always, this error occurs when an author has incorrectly used superscript or subscript in part of the equation


To resolve this problem, each equation associated with the error must be corrected by hand in the Word document. Search for the following comment in the exported XML document and note which equation it precedes:


The part of the equation causing this error will be missing in the XML version of the equation when compared against the MathType version. To resolve the problem, correct the equation in Word with MathType, using MathType operations that are compatible with MathML. Once the equations have been corrected, the manuscript should export without error.

Note: MathType 6.5 has an improved MathML translation that reduces the incidence of these errors significantly. If you are not using version 6.5 of MathType with an eXtyles XML export, we recommend that you upgrade. Inera recommends any version of MathType 6.5 or later, up to the most recent release, 6.9.
