Hi All,

I am a recent user of Studio 2011, and have already encountered many issues (hating it)
After finishing my translation, I tried to save the target file, but the following problem appeared:

>Unexpected end of file has occurred. The following elements are not closed: group, body, file, xliff. Line 10785, position 1.

The .sdlxliff file won´t open and won´t be imported to the TM.
I tried to open a fresh source language, but then I realised the TM had not been fully updated. All updates seem to come from the multiple import instances I made from the .sdlxliff file to the TM (a previous problem which solution I found here).

So now, I have a 80% translated file, and few hours before the deadline. Does anyone have a better solution than retranslating?

Thanks much in advance.

... points towards the sdlxliff file being corrupted as it seems to be missing some of the file.

I don't know why you have to work by importing the sdlxliff to the TM to get an update as you should be updating the TM as you work. But if you have not done this, and if the sdlxliff file is corrupted then it may be tricky to recover without manually trying to repair the file.

If you can share the sdlxliff file with me I can take a look?
