Hello colleagues,

I am new to Trados Studio and nearly finished with a project.

Now the catastrophe happens: The file view shows 95% completion in the progress bar.

Open the file for translation fails with the message that the file XXX.xlsx.sdlxliff does not exist.

It appears to be non-existent anymore on my disk.

Is there any way that I could recover my work?

Any hints or ideas are very much appreciated.

Michael

Even if you're unable to find the file (I suggest checking the recycle bin and searching the whole disk(s) even for partial matches of that filename), your work should be safely stored in the project TM, so, if it comes to that, you could still reimport the file and pretranslate it...

Many thanks for your help Aug 8

I've found the TM in the project folder, managed to reimport the file and to populate the translations from the TM.

You saved my day.

Michael
