Greetings. I am using Studio 2015 freelance, and suddenly today I've received 2 sdlxliff files that I am not able to open. Studio says "An error occured whilst trying to determine the file version" and then just closes the file.

I've tried to search for the error in this forum, but was not able to find this error covered. anyone who has an idea what may be wrong? I have not had problems with files from this agency before, so I am somewhat puzzled what may be wrong. Can there be an update that my system perhaps dislikes?

Different ways opening files Jan 27, 2016

How did you open the file (or tried to)?
The same happened to me when I double-clicked some files and when I tried to open them via the "Welcome" screen. It worked when I right-clicked the files in the Microsoft Explorer window and chose "Open with" SDL Trados.
Hope it works for your files too.

That did it Jan 27, 2016

Thanks for the suggestion. It did work, although I would love to know what's wrong. As it is I don't seem to be able to deliver a return package with the correct sdlxliff file, but at least I now am able to deliver the translated sdlxliff file separately.

I hope someone may know what is actually wrong.

But at least this is a possible solution, so very nice.

Return Package Jan 27, 2016

Glad to hear.
Although I do not know the reason in my case the return package worked perfectly well. (And the error messages in Studio are sometimes a bit misleading, I think.)
I'll keep my fingers crossed that this works in your case too!
