I have one problem save target form Trados Studio 2011. It is a .mif 11 file. I have done QA and verified it via Xbench and Verifika. No tag problems... but i still have the "Failed to save target content: An item with the same key has already been added."

please have you any idea what to do with the file?

Two ideas Oct 16, 2013

I've seen this error message recently in Studio 2014 with doc converted to docx files.

I was able to solve it on two separate occasions:
1. By deleting a comment I'd added in the sdlxliff file to a footer (you can't add comments in Word footers).
2. By deleting some field codes in the Word file that hadn't survived the doc to docx conversion, and then pretranslating the modified file with my TM.

I know we're talking about different file types and different Studio versions, but maybe this might help a bit?
