Hello there,
I appear to have a problem with creating a project on basis of an .idml-file (created with CS5; not that big, about 2 MB).
When creating the project, the process stops at a certain point (differs from PC to PC when exactly). The analysis can’t be created, and neither the project TM/project file. Yet the sdlxliff-files are created, and can be opened individually. But when I’m trying to get them pre-translated (which also should have happened when creating the project), it stops again at about 90%.

Does anyone have an idea, what a possible solution could be?
Unfortunately there’s nothing like an error message. There’s just nothing happening anymore from a certain point on and Trados has to be shut down via task manager eventually.

I hope I mentioned all important things...

Many thanks in advance!
