SDL Trados Studio 2014: Unable to open sdlxliff file and sdltm

Hi All,

I almosted finished my translation when I got a message: ">" is not an acceptable marker; "=" marker is expected. String 24885, Line 1223776". Now I can't open neither the bilingual file, nor the project TM, and Trados says "the translation memory file data is corrupt".

I could try translating the source file with a new TM, but I can't open, export or do anything with my project TM now.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
