Trados Studio 2011: Cannot open files (html, csv, txt) in Editor

Dear All,

I desperately need your help.

I created a project from 3 files (html, csv, txt) in Studio 2011 for 16 target languages, each language having file-based TM assigned.

My troubles begun when I tried to Prepare the files and create project TMs. I constantly received an error "An item with the same key has already been added" for all languages.

I was not sure that I need to create the project-based TMs, as I already had TMs for each language, so I selected an option to prepare the files without creating project-based TMs. It worked, the files where processed, analyzed and pre-translated (at least the reports say so), and I thought it was all right finally.

Then I tried to open a file in Editor, and received the same old "An item with the same key has already been added"!

I tried to open files for each language with the same result, except Russian. For Russian all 3 files open in Editor all right. The only difference between Russian and other languages is that there is no Russian TM.

I tried to reorganize and re-index the TMs for each language, I also tried deleting UserSettings.xml and BaseSettings.xml from AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\\, and nothing helped.

I assume the problem lies with the TMs, and not with the source files, as I can open them for Russian.

Any ideas how to fix this would be very welcome!

Best regards,

Update Jul 3, 2012

Just wanted to add that I tried to solve the problem by creating new TMs and creating the project with new TMs from scratch. It did not help, I got the exact same mistakes.

I had no problems with my projects before. The only thing different is that I added a variables list and edited segmentation rules, and then created the TMs with the corresponding language resource template.

Please please help!
