The error I get all of a sudden when translating with Studio 2011 reads as follows:
SDL XLIFF validation error at line 5748 offset 713.
This is followed by the sentence "The key sequence (long alphanumeric code)...... fails to refer to some key"

Has anyone encountered this error? If so, how was that resolved? Dont know if this has been discussed before. Didnt find it though.

Thanks so much in advance
