project_save.tmx not opening after a omegat.project corruption
Thread poster: rafael_lima

Oct 18, 2016

Hi there, I need help badly.

I am working on a translation file with OmegaT, more than 80% done. I opened it today, got the "Content is not allowed in prolog" error in the omegat.project file.

So I got another omegat.project file copied into the project folder, the project now opens, but I lost all the translation made.

I *can see* in the omegat folder the project_save.tmx file is still there and it still contains all the translation done, but it just doesn't show up in the OMEGAT editor. I even tried rename one of the .bak files to be the main project_save file and still nothing.

Please, someone help me. Isn't there any way to load the project_save.tmx file directly into omegat, or some other way to solve this issue?

Thank you a lot in advance.

EDIT - Figured it out by myself. I created the new omegat.projet file using a different source language of the original file. When I changed it to the correct language, it worked.

Thank you anywayicon_smile.gif
