Unable to translate Unicode character

Please help!

I've got 4 different SDLXLIFF files that I am trying to Save to Target. 3 are MIFs translated into FR and 1 is an IDML translated into DE. All 4 are returning a similar error message:

Unable to translate Unicode character \uD863 at index ~

I have been working with Trados for a few years and have never seen this message. I was thinking it might have something to do with the regional settings on the machine but this has not changed so I can't imagine where this is coming from.

I have tried pre-translating the source file as this workaround often works with confusing Trados errors, however this has not worked.

Has anyone seen this message and any ways to bypass it?

Thank you!
