Hello there,
I am running SDL Trados 2007 (build 826) on Windows XP. When I try to clean up a translated Word file, I receive the following error message:

(-2147467259): Filter defintions file C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\SDL International\Filters\PluginFileFilterDefinitions.xml could not be located.

I am then left with a .BAK file, but the cleaned file has vanished. I can get around this by opening the 2006 version of Trados and cleaning it there.

Can anyone advise me?

Macro? Oct 12, 2007

My experience with Word files is that using Workbench to clean them can be rather hit and miss. Have you tried using the clean macro Trados adds to Word instead? It's called tw4winClean.Main. You just have to remember to save the file under a different name if you want to keep the original uncleaned file.

Use the Repair function of Add/remove programs! Nov 15, 2007

Hello Diarmuid,

I just fixed exactly the same problem on Windows Vista with Trados 2007 8.0 professional. The fix is described in Proz.com already, although only in Spanish in:
http://cat.proz.com/topic/84190

The solution is tremendously simple, or at least it worked in us the three people I know of:
1. Go to the Control panel.
2. Use the uninstall feature, or the Add/remove programs if you are using the classic appearance.
3. Choose the SDL Trados software.
4. Click the Change button, and soon you should see a Repair option (I can't tell you exactly when it appears, because I have Vista here).

This repairs the Registry entries for Trados and should fix your problem.

I hope this helps!

Yep! Nov 15, 2007

Thanks Tomás,

Yes, I posted this fix a little while ago, it seems to have vanished. It worked for me and one other person I know of.
