Hi, people!

I have a problem when I try to save the targets files on my computer. The following message appears on my screen:

Failed to save target content: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.

I read on other threads and tried to create another project from start and with th TM of that project, but Trados does not recognize the language pair. Could you help me, please? It is a very long project and I cannot start all over!

Thank you in advance.

Hi Rosalia,

If the language pairs are not recognised then you have probably created a project using different languages than the ones used in your TM. Be careful that the flavours are the same. So English (US) is not the same as English (GB) for example.

You can work around this using an application like AnyTM available through the OpenExchange and as explained in these articles:

It’s all English… right?

AnyTM… or SuperTM!

But perhaps double check you have the language pairs correct first and then try and deal with your file. If you still struggle we can take a look at it for you if you can send the translated SDLXLIFF and the original source file to me at
