Hi everyone,

I was translating a file and was about to finish it and needed to shut down my computer. When I turn it back on, I can't open the file I was working on and it says:

"Unexpected error when detecting file type for file xxxxxxx hexadecimal value 0x00 is an invalid character. Line 307756, position 54"

I tried to create a new sldxliff file from my pptx, but the strange thing is that I can't populate the file. It's as if I hadn't used the TM for the file I was previously translating.

Any idea how to solve this issue?

Many thanks!
