WinAlign Error 70156 Jan 2, 2008

Hi everybody
I am experiencing problem.
I have tried almost every possible file conversion and haven´t managed to align these problematic docs. I mainly get this error message when trying to align .xls files.
I would really appreciate any advice on managing this problem in the future.

Thanks in advance,
Consuelo Padilla

Winalign Error (40005) May 28, 2008

"Winalign Error (40005): The input ended before all starting tags were ended.Last tag started was 'Raw'"

This is the message I get when trying to align XLS files. WinAlign has worked great in the past ONLY when I break files down into small pieces. This time, I broke the XLS file down into files with 50 rows, but the problem persists.

Since the WinAlign user manual makes no mention of file size limits or how to handle these error messages, perhaps someone out there can share their thoughts.

Thank you,

Try this... May 29, 2008


Try saving the files as ttx in TagEditor (go to "Save Bilingual As...") and then aligning them.

Many Thanks,

Gareth Powell

Gareth's suggestion worked for me Apr 1, 2009

I was getting an error when I tried to align two DOC files, or two TXT files. But when I saved the DOC files as TTX files using TagEditor, I could then align the TTX files with WinAlign.

Not working with TTX files either for me Mar 17, 2011

I get this error even when I convert the files to TTX, no solution yet.

Doh, user error! Mar 17, 2011

Doh! I forgot to change the file type to TTX in the project settings, once I did that it aligned correctly.
