Greetings to all! I suddenly got an error on OmegaT. It was a saving error. I did not worry too much because my work was already saved. When I opened OmegaT again, my project files are completely untranslated. I tried opening the project_save.tmx in a word file and the translation is there. I don't understand why it won't load in OmegaT. It is the first time I have used this CAT tool. Solutions and suggestions will be very much appreciated! Thanks!

If it's there in the tmx file, then it is not erased.
Did you consult the manual? file:///C:/Program%20Files%20%28x86%29/OmegaT_3.6.0/docs/en/chapter.misc.html#preventing.data.loss

I don't know what had happened, but if you say that your project_save.tmx file contains the translation, then try this emergency method: create a new project, put your source files in the /source/ folder, and put your old project_save.tmx file in the /tm/auto/ folder. Then press F5.
