Hi there

I sincerely hope the Trados staff are available to help with this.

Studio just crashed while generating a report and after a restart, I received the following message for the project.

Failed to load project from C:...
There is in a error in the XML file (10027, 186)
There is an undisclosed literal string: Line 10027, position 186

I can still open the individual sdlxliff files in the DE-DE project folder.

Is there any way to sort this WITHOUT creating a new project as I have a tight deadline.


Update: IT'S SORTED!!!

You have to delete the report files - XMLs - and open the project by double-clicking the project file. The files I translated this morning were empty but everything was in the TM so apart from an hour that I lost, nothing is actually lost (other than some of my sanity). Thanks to the guys at the agency who pulled out all the stops to help me sort this problem!
