Hello everyone

Using Trados 2011 on Windows 7.

I started getting this error message after I started fixing some errors . So I suppose that I broke a tag somewhere. But the error message does not tell me which tag, or in which segment the tag is. I also saved the error as an .sdlerror.xml file, but that file doesn't tell me where the superfluous key is either.

Do you know of a utility that I can use to process the SDLXLIFF file, that will tell me which key isn't in the dictionary?

Then, when I try to use any of the batch processing tasks on the file, I get the message "Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt." A reboot didn't solve this. As it is, my SDLXLIFF file (which is about 10 000 words long) is now useless. I can't generate target files or anything with it. The .sdlerror.xml file isn't helpful either.

I wonder if I will stop getting the memory error once I fix the missing key error...
