When I try to open a licensed translation bundle (*.tbulic) in Passolo Essential 2011 I receive the message "Cannot open file". But I open this file without problems in Passolo 2011 Translator edition. It is really strange, because Passolo Essential 2011 is more advanced edition than free Passolo 2011 Translator edition. Does anybody encountered it?

Use the Translator Edition Oct 25, 2011

Hello Myron,

By design SDL Passolo Essential can't open a translation bundle. The reason is that the free SDL Passolo Translator Edition is more advanced and has much more translator productivity features than SDL Passolo Essential.

What is missing in the Translator Edition is the ability to create and maintain projects.

There's nothing you can do about it Oct 25, 2011

SDL Passolo Essential
SDL Passolo Essential is included as an application within the latest version of SDL Trados. This edition allows you to create and translate projects, as well as generate localized target files.

However, there are feature limitations, such as no QA checking feature, no leveraging from previously translated content and you can only use one target language per project.

Thanks for advice, but there is another question Oct 25, 2011

Dear Achim,

I have already installed the Translator Edition, but there is a problem with connecting SDLTrados Studio ad-in, which I described here: http://rus.proz.com/forum/sdl_trados_support/201386-passolo:_trados_studio_ad_in_and_itd_export_problem.html
Could you please advise?

Two versions Jun 15, 2012

In case others have this issue in the future, on my computer I have two versions of Passolo, the Translator Edition and the Essential Edition. If Windows is set to open Passolo Bundles with the first, it won't work.

Dear colleague,

Do you mean that it is possible to set Windows to open bundles in Essential Edition either?
