Hello Everyone,

I've already found similar topics, but no solution to this issue in any of them.

I created a project in SDL Trados Studio 2011 Professional with a folder structure from 11 XLIFF files, sent the packages for translation and review. Now, when I have the translation I cannot generate target files either by "Generate Target Translations", or by "Export files" option. I constantly get the "Sequence contains no elements" error and no files are generated.

I tried to send the package to my colleague with Trados 2015, but he couldn't generate target files as well. The reviewer with Trados 2015 couldn't get the target files either.

I would really appreciate any help on this topic, including any workaround ideas, as I have to generate target translations for 11 files into 5 languages and it seems hopeless at the moment, while the deadline is already pressing.

Thank you very much in advance.

Best regards,
