I am trying to create a Translation Workflow in Web8 when I attempt to Save the Process Definition from Visio to the Content Manager I get the following error message

Invalid value for property 'ActivityDefinitions'. Activity 'RETRIEVE' has invalid script. L2: Unexpected character: =

The script looks fine to me so what am I missing. The script is as follows:

`// Script for Automatic Activity Content Manager Workflow
ActivityFinishData finishData = new ActivityFinishData() { Message = "Automatic Activity Finished" };
SessionAwareCoreServiceClient.FinishActivity(CurrentActivityInstance.Id, finishData, null);`

I have Visio Premium 2010 SP2 installed

The Script Type is "Translation Manager activity"

The script must be a single keyword. So replace the three lines you have (the comment and the two C# lines) with a single keyword: RETRIEVE

It is this keyword in the script Translation Manager will pick up, not the title of your activity.
