I just upgraded to Trados 8.3 and I get the following error when I try to open Word docs from Tag Editor or when I try to create a New Project in the Synergy window.

It says in both cases " Unknown filter error when reading plugin filter management file C://... PluginFilterFileDefinitions.xml.

I get the distinct sense that they launched this version as basically a beta version...there will be plenty more bugs.

Did you try to... Dec 9, 2008 your file directly in TagEditor? If you did and you got the same error message, this means that the file PluginFilterFileDefinitions.xml is missing from your Trados installation folder.
Go to, download the latest version and save it to your Trados installation folder.

Trados didn't launch this version as beta: the only beta feature is automated translation for some language pairs.
