Error: Failed to initialize editor view

Hi all,

When I start Trados 2009 (SP1), the following error message pops up: "Failed to initialize view 'Editor view'. The language direction of an element in the TM Cascade is incompatible with the cascade's language direction." The weird thing is that it came out of the blue. Trados always worked before...

I have uninstalled Trados 2009 and re-installed it, but it still didn't work. After that, I uninstalled all products from SDL and re-installed everything, but to no avail. I googled and searched the customer portal of SDL but I can't find any solution. I take the necessary precautions to keep viruses and spyware out, so I don't think that's the problem.

Is there anybody who has had this problem before? If you can't help me with this exact problem, could somebody tell me if it is possible to open/extract an sdlxliff file for proofreading? Or could I export a TM from Studio to tmx without the use of Trados? I need to proofread a file quite urgently and all I have is a sdlxliff file. If I could export the TM to tmx I could proofread it with Trados 2007.

All help is very welcome! Thank you in advance.

clean registry? Jan 19, 2010

Well, right, something similar happened to me once -- I don't exactly enjoy looking into these extraterrestrial system errors, so this is really only a bit of anecdote.

I was trying out the views in the Editor, i.e. dragging Concordance, TM results, Termbase viewer … all over the place outside the Editor window and generally stretching it a bit. I also had a termbase open. I shut down Studio without resizing the lot to their default sizes & positions.

I was curious, Would Studio remember my wonderful Constellation of Views?

Upon restarting I was notified that One had failed to initialise the Editor view, and that a Key was already in Use by some Thing or Other.

I dutifully uninstalled Studio.

I also asked McAfee to clean the registry ("Register opschonen") which is only a click and a two second wait away. I very likely rebooted; only then did I reinstall the software.

No crashes since. I now always close the windows before leaving the house. And turn off the gas.

Already tried that... Jan 19, 2010

Hi Stefan,

Thanks for the help. Unfortunately I have already re-installed the whole package after I had uninstalled everything (even a second time with Revo Uninstaller, which removes a whole bunch of leftovers from the original uninstaller, like registry keys etc.). I also clean my registry regularly with CCleaner.

I hadn't changed a thing in Studio before this error popped up, it suddenly just refused to start. No idea what to do next!

Try this... Jan 19, 2010

Hello,

It is possible that your Studio profiles have become corrupt. Please go to C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\9.1.0.0\ and delete the following files:

BaseSettings.xml
Plugincache.xml
UserSettings.xml

If you are using Windows Vista/Windows 7 then it will be C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\9.1.0.0\

I hope this helps.

Many Thanks,

Gareth Powell

Problem persists? Jan 20, 2010

Hi,

Unfortunately another error message pops up when I try to open a file for translation. Now it says: The language direction of an element in the TM Cascade is incompatible with the cascade's language direction.

Trados can be launched now but I can't open a file to translate!

Please help as soon as possible.

Want to retake the subject Oct 28, 2011

Hello there! I successfully finished and delivered a project and, right when I resumed another one, I got exactly the same message: "The language direction of an element in the TM Cascade is incompatible with the cascade's language direction".

I already tried Gareth's solution.
I already cleaned the registry.
I already shut down my computer and turned it on again.
I already uninstalled and reinstalled Studio.



None of these worked. Maybe the SDL has already studied this issue?




Only SDLXIFFs which I have already worked on open after getting error messages, but, when I want to process a new file so as to save it as a Studio file, this is what happens:

1. Studio opens.

2. An error message appears: "The language direction of an element in the TM Cascade is incompatible with the cascade's language direction".

3. After clicking "OK", the "Open document" box appears. Then, I realize that the memory list is empty (Just as if I didn't have any).

4. After clicking "OK", I get the error message once again: "The language direction of an element in the TM Cascade is incompatible with the cascade's language direction".

5. After clicking "OK", I get a pop-up box that reads:



Error processing command line arguments: The language direction of an element in the TM Cascade is incompatible with the cascade's language direction.

--------------------------------------------------

I am pretty sure that more people than those that have participated in this forum are getting the same problem. Maybe some other file is damaged or there is actually an issue with the C++? I hope that I gave extensive information on the issue. Thank you!

Got a temporary bypass solution Oct 28, 2011

Hi again! I found a temporary solution for the TM-related issue. Instead of double-clicking the SDLXLIFFs or trying to make a conversion by left-clicking on a file from a Windows Explorer folder window, start a new project from Studio and follow all the step.

The files will be converted and memory access will have no problem. This, however, does not solve the problem that our friends who only get converted files. : (

Hope this helps for anyone who has the same problem. I feel that I was lucky this did not happen in the middle of a big project!

My only suggestion is that you don't trust the software at 100%. Errors do appear.

Regards,


PEDRO CASTRO

Studio 2011: Failed to initialize view "projectsView" Aug 11, 2013

Hi there,

Resurrecting an old thread with a similar problem.

After much recalcitrance (my last attempt to update Studio failed miserably), I finally updated to Studio 2011 SP2R - 10.4.3079.1, in the hope of eliminating some annoying random bug messages.

The update seemed to work fine, although two separate updates were needed (to install CU 9 as well). I then rebooted Windows.

Now, when I try to start Studio, it automatically opens the Files view of the last project I edited. But when I try to switch to the Projects view, I get an error message "Failed to initialize view 'ProjectsView'". Each subsequent attempt to open the Projects view generates the error message "Object reference not set to an instance of an object".

And just to be really, really annoying, the program gives me the same "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" error message when I try to quit - so I have to kill the process manually with the Windows Task Manager.

Now, to edit an active project, I have to open the sdlxliff file manually from within the project directory in the Studio folder - and add the project memories again - each time I launch the program, which is a clear drop in usability. If I try to open the project package with File -> Open Package or File -> Open Project, Studio says "This project has already been opened in Trados Studio 2011 and added to the project list" (which I of course can't display).

Furthermore, since I can't open the package from the Projects view, I can't create a return package, either, which my client is expecting of me - making this matter rather urgent.

I would greatly appreciate it if someone from SDL Trados could let me know if there's a simple solution to this problem. I searched the SDL KB and Google, but could not find a single hit involving the Projects view, only the Editor view (the same applies to this thread).

Alternatively, if anyone else has encountered this error and found a workaround, please share.

Thanks in advance,
Harry.

projects view error message Aug 11, 2013

I suggest you:
Close Studio.
Delete the 3 xml files: BaseSettings.xml, Plugincache.xml, UserSettings.xml here:
C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\10.0.0.0

If this does not help then try deleting "projects.xml" located in
C:\Users\[USERNAME]\Documents\SDL Trados Studio\Projects

Your project list will disappear and you will need to re-open your projects in Studio to have them back in the list. To do this go to File > Open > Project and browse to the project you want to open. It will then be added to the Projects list Studio.

HTH,
Emma

Thanks, but it didn't help Aug 11, 2013

Hi Emma,

Thanks for the attempt, but no dice, I'm afraid.

Deleting the xml files from Users > [username] > AppData > Roaming > SDL > SDL Trados Studio > 10.0.0.0 simply resets my settings, but I get the same error messages.

Deleting the projects.xml file seems to have no effect whatsoever.

Regards,
Harry

Maybe try a full reset? Aug 12, 2013

Hello Harry,

If you have tried the usual solution to this problem and it did not help then can you try a full reset as described here: http://goo.gl/5xyfHx
