Good evening...

Can anyone help me in regards to this problem?

I was using Trados (5.5 FL) running my main TM and working on a file.

The power went off and now, if I try to open that particular TM, I get:


Can I get around this somehow?

I have WinME, Trados 5.5 FL... I can open and run other TMs without any problem but not the one that was open during the black out.

I can even open that main TM in the background of another TM (for concordance

searches). I just can\'t open it directly

This is rather urgent (isn\'t it always!!!) and I thank you for any help you can provide!

Many thanks in advance

Nathalie Girard-Grace

*** I received an ultra-speedy answer to my problem on the Trados_Users list, and wanted to post the results here:

I simply had to create a new folder and COPY the 5 Trados files which create the TM into this new folder. It worked like a charm!

I hope this info can help others in these forums

Have a good night!
