Help, I can't retrieve a project in Trados Studio 2011
Thread poster: FFrio

When I was translating a document using Trados Studio 2011, my computer shut itself down and when I opened the program again, I couldn't retrieve my current project, and the following message was displayed:

"An error occured whilst trying to determine the file version."

I tried to load another project document and it worked, but the 'Files View' didn't show it, so I couldn't edit my translation or turn what I had translated so far into a Word document.

My translation was nearly 80% ready and it is due to April 10th.icon_frown.gif

Have looked on your computer in documents? Apr 7, 2013

Outside of Studio, in Documents/Studio 2011/Projects - is your project in there?

Failing that, presumably it is all in the translation memory, so just create a new project and reload the files.

Reboot? Apr 7, 2013

I had this exact error last week and a reboot solved it.
