Hi there,

I am experiencing problems with Trados Studio 2014, it seems that after a power cut I cannot access the programme anymore.

I am on a Mac using Trados on Windows 8.1. through Parallels and when I try to open trados I get this error message:

An unexpected error has occurred while loading the global plug-in services.

I then click OK to close the window, but the next message is:

Could not find any resources appropriate for the specified culture (or the natural culture) on disk. BaseName: Sdl.LCStudioIntegration.Common.plugin LocationInfo fileName:Sdl.LCStudioIntegration.Common.pluggin.resources

Does anybody know what I can do?

I've tried changing the SDL file names, but they won't change or delete, because it says I have the folder open elsewhere (when I haven't).

Many thanks

How did you fix it? Nov 21, 2015

I'm experiencing just the same error with SDL Studio 2015 and also after a system reboot. I'm trying to fix it by reinstalling SDL Studio, but it's not working.
Did you manage to fix this problem? If so, how did you do it?
