Hello all,

I have a project package from a client and I opened it without problems. When I open the file to be translated, though, I get the error message:

Could not find file 'xxx.doc'

(The name of my translatable file is 'xxx.doc.sdlxliff.) It gives me the option to search for the file on my computer, but I have not got that file. But I never get the original source files in packages, only the sdlxliff, and never had problems before...?

I can just click 'No' and the file still opens, I can translate in it but then get the error again when saving and it will not save. So basically I can't work with it.

I had this error a while ago on a different project and back then I asked the client for the original .doc file, put that in the folder and pointed Studio to it. I was then able to open and save my file, however the client later had problems creating the target files. So that was not the real solution I suppose.

Anyone have any ideas what this could be?

I have SP3 and run Windows XP Professional.

Thanks!

Kerstin

Embedded filetype options Sep 19, 2011

Hi Kerstin,

Have a look at this blog post, maybe it will help:

If that's the case, maybe you can ask your client to recreate the project, this time setting the maximum embedded file size to a number that will allow the source file to be embedded.

Thanks Sep 19, 2011

That makes sense to me, Nora. Although the file size is set to 20 on the project, but it is a large file. I let my client know and we will see how it goes.

Thanks for now, I will update as soon as I know more.
