I was translating a Word 2007 file in Cafetran Ichiro 2016 on a computer with Windows 10. Suddenly, the computer was restarted. When I opened Cafetran, when clicking on the project I was working, I get a window that says "content is not allowed in prolog". Anyone know if I can get my job back?
Thank you.

Reuse Project Memory Jun 22, 2016

Your project file may have got corrupted when you computer restarted suddenly. However, the project memory - ProjectTM.tmx file located in the project folder may be okay.

1. Create a new project with the same source document.
2. Activate the Memory menu via the View > Show memory menu.
3. In the Memory menu, click Memory > Open memory... and load the ProjectTM.tmx memory file from the previous project.
4. After it is loaded, insert all the exact matches from this translation memory via the Translate > Insert all exact matches.
5. Review the translation to see if there are any empty segments left. You can use the QA > Empty segments check for this purpose. You would need to activate the QA menu too (View > Show QA menu).
6. Export the translation to create the translated document.
