When I want to upgrade a legacy translation memory form Trados 2007 (.tmw file) in Studio 2011 or 2015 using the feature "Upgrading Translation Memories" the following occurs:

1. .tmw file is automatically exported properly
2. Then in the step "create translation memory..." the error is reported: "A picklist value with the specified name already exists."
3. In effect, the last step (import to the newly created memory) fails.

Any ideas how to fix this?

P.S. In the past, this feature worked perfecly (in Studio 2011) but one day just stopped... I thought this was only the case with Studio 2011 on my old PC but it is the same in Studio 2015 on my new machine...
