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.

Dear Anna,

This is Guillaume from SDL.

So we can assist you further could you give me in an email the 6 digits order number of your license?

Kind regards,
