A very bad day in Studio!!

The basic problem is that Studio just shuts down... Over, and over, and over. But there are some other weird symptoms.

For example, when I get it going again, either my project will disappear form the list, or it will change names and take on the name of the file itself.

At first, it was just shutting down on one segment. Now it is just shutting down all the time, as soon as I open it.

I had the same sort of problem last week, and thought it was linked to the segment itself. I was able to "trick" Studio into continuing by creating a new probject with my half-translated text and manually copying each translated segment until I got to the untranslated part. I finished the job and thought no more of it.

Now the problem is really serious and I've already lost an hour trying to fix it, but it's just getting worse. I have a lot of work to do and have resorted to directly translating in Word, which is slowing me down.

Please help!!!!

Update Sep 5, 2011

Okay, so I can use Studio (2009, btw)... I just can't confirm any of the segments. As soon as I confirm, the whole thing shuts down, and sometimes I can't get my project back.

Has anyone else had this problem?

try deleting the settings files Sep 5, 2011

It might be worth deleting these 3 settings files:
BaseSettings.xml, Plugincache.xml, UserSettings.xml
C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\9.1.0.0\

Close Studio, delete the files and re-open.
Hope it solves your problems.

By the way, you can get your translation "on paper" without confirming the segments. Just save the target file with shift F12. Confirming the segments only puts them into the TM, it doesn't affect the target output.

Emma, you are a star!! Sep 6, 2011

Things are looking so much brighter this morning than they were yesterday!! All it took was a good night's sleep and your precious advice, Emma! (I NEVER would have figured that out on my own, and still don't know what exactly I just did, but it worked, and I'm back in business!)

So thank you, thank you, thank you, Emma!!

P.S. I couldn't even get to the point where I was saving the target file yesterday. Any key shut the whole thing down. But it's all right now!

Thanks again, a real gold star for that one!
