Hello everyone and happy new year

I am using WinAlign with Trados 2007 and Trados 2009 (SP3), English to French. When trying to align two documents, I had a message saying approximately “Error 40005, Invalid Pointer” (actually it was in French, pointeur non valide). I uninstalled the whole Trados 2007 (including Winalign), and re-installed it. Now when trying to align documents, I get exactly this message: (40005): “An exception occurred! Type UTFDataFormatException, Message: Invalid second byte of a UTF-8 character sequence”, then the location of the files, followed by “line 1, column 1”.

So what should I do now?

Thanks for helping me.

Jean-Pierre

What kind of formats do you try to align? Jan 5, 2011

Are these XML files?

Word 2000 Jan 5, 2011

I am trying to align Word 2000 documents. So far this procedure worked perfectly well with this type of documents. I have tried to re-align old pairs of documents from several months ago, and I still get the same error message.

Register Trados software Jan 6, 2011

From Start - Programs go to SDL International, then Trados program group and let the "Register SDL Trados 2007 Freelance" application run.
Unfortunately this is the only hint I can give you for the moment, as I do not know more about WinAlign trouble shooting.
You may also want to look at http://talisma.sdl.com and serach there.
