Hi.
I'm trying to keep calm but I'm facing a disaster here.
My deadline is firt time tomorrow, my computer has crashed, there is no way to use my Studio 2009, and all I've got is the sdlxliff documents.
Does anybody know if I can open this documents with SDL Trados 2007 or any other way?
I don't think I will be able to meet the deadline if I can't recover what I have already translated.
Thanks.
Silvia

I use it to convert my 2011 files for use with Tag editor or you can convert your files into tmx and import that into your other application

good luck!

recovery sofware Oct 27, 2013

I have had a similar misfortune.
You can find free sofware to download and recover your files.

I have managed to restart Windows when others think it's all lost. I might be able to help you if I could sit at your computer.
Do you have any computer savvy person to ask for help??

Now that Silvia has finished her job, thank goodness, a couple of thoughts on recovery software.

Some troubleshooting is required to find the right solution.

Unfortunately, I've seen too many (self-claimed?) computer savvy people who can fix any problem by reformatting the hard disk and reinstalling everything. They love this solution because it it's fail-proof unless there is hardware trouble and, as they usually get paid by the hour, it takes a whale of time to reinstall everything.

I see three major potential sources of trouble here.

1. Trados problem
Perhaps some glitch in Trados caused a poorly organized file. In this case, only Trados itself would have the solution, in case there is one.

2. File accidentally deleted or marked as such
In this case, the file recovery software should help. One such free solution is Pandora Recovery, though there are many others.

3. Hard disk trouble
Javier's report on being able to start Windows when it seems to be lost reminded me of SpinRite. I first found it in the old PC-XT days, when a 40 MB (sic!) hard drive cost $400. Ever since, it has made all my hard drives "eternal". The video on that site is self-explanatory. Not free, but only US$90.

Of course there are more possibilities, however these are the most frequent ones.
