I was sent a project in Trados Studio 2014 containing a termbase.

While trying to open the file for translation I get the following message: "The termbase xxx could not be connected so term recognition cannot use this termbase.

I have tried to open the package several times and checked from Project Settings whether the termbase was there.
The termbase appears to be in the package. However, next to it there is a red cross symbol and by simply pointing at the name of the termbase I get this message "xxx esc-de-sdl2011".

Would you be able to help me solve this issue?
Thank you in advance.
