Hello experts,

I have Trados Freelance 7.0 and Windows XP.

I have translated an .inx.ttx file by using TagEditor but when I try to clean it, I get the following message in Workbench:

[.21474672] UnExpected error during backward conversion End of Input[] Please check the log file...

And in the log file, the following is shown:

Start Cleanup: Mon Dec 05 20:53:08 2011

Translation Memory: C:\Documents and Settings\ADMIN\Desktop\1.tmw

C:\[Location]

(-2147467259): UnExpected error during backward conversion EndOfInput()
Please check the log file......
File skipped!

Cleanup Total (0 files):

Segments Words Chars/Word Placeables
Cleaned 83 844 5.55 53
Updated 0 0 0
Total 83 844 5.55 53

Both the files are in same folder and their names are same (except extensions).

Could you please guide what exactly is wrong and what should be done to clean it?

Thanks and regards,

Chopra

Why clean it? Dec 5, 2011

Hi!

Why do you want to "clean" a ttx file?

When you finish your last revision, just to go File>Save target as and the inx file will be created.


Hope this helps

Marina

Maybe the filter version Dec 6, 2011

It may be because of the filter version (in case you are working with a ttx file sent by the client).

If this is the case, try creating a ttx on your maching (assuming the client also sent the inx file) and apply your TM on this new ttx. Then, try to save a clean file from the ttx you created and populated with your TM.

If it works, consider sending the project specific TM along with the other files to the client, just in case they also have problems with the filter.

Hope this helps.

.ini file Dec 6, 2011

The client sent me .ini file and I created the .ttx file from it by translating it with TagEditor.

Chopra

Possible procedures Dec 6, 2011

Hi Chopra,
as I replied to your message elswhere, INX files can be troublesome in TagEditor.

I'd try to following:
1. Press F8 to run tag verification; there may be a tag missing from the translation
2. If everything is okay, try to open the source INX file in TagEditor anew and then try to save it as target (Shift + F12). If you get an error, then there is a problem with the INX file and you will be unable to translate it with Workbench + TagEditor. There is good chance though that you will be able to process the INX file with Studio.

HTH.

Press F8 and.. Oct 4, 2012

I got the same problem..

Press F8 as Mr. Pokorny says and then start correcting the mistakes (with tag protection off). After correcting (as much as you could) try saving as .inx file again.

Mistakes are like (there are spacing differences) and it shows where it is. Just correct it, simple. When you double click on the message, it shows where it is.

It works!!!

I hope it works for you too...
