Trouble cleaning XML files in Trados 2011.

Good afternoon,

I'm currently encountering troubles when trying to clean an XML file to which an .sdlftsettings file was applied.

My client requested a .sdlftsettings file (settings file) to be applied so all tags can be properly displayed.

Here's how I proceed following my client's instructions:

At creation of a project in the window for choosing the files for translation I add the .sdlftsettings file after clicking the button "File Types..."
After that the window "Project File Type Settings" opens, and I click - "Import Settings" – and select the provided .sdlftsettings file and then press "Add".
I then add the file to translate and finish the creation of the project – in the file for translation, tags are now properly placed.

The problem occurs when I click the Save Target As button to clean the .sdlxliff back to the original XML format. At this step, the following error message displays:

Failed to save Target content: Cannot find file type definition with id 500908 document.

I can't clean the translated .sdlxliff file back to XML and I'd like to know if anyone could help me with this problem.

Thanks in advance!
