Hello everyone,

I have received an .sdlxliff file to proofread from a client but when I try to open it with Studio 2009 SP3 I get the following error message:

"an item with the same key has already been added"

I'm pretty sure it was working fine just before I installed SP3. I even tried to reinstall the software and go back to SP2, but that didn't solve the issue unfortunately.

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated!

Hi Bruno,

I have exactly the same problem as yours. Did you manage to open the document somehow ?
