I use SDL Trados Studio Freelance 2015 (SR 3 12.3.5281.10).

For a very large document, I have been able to generate a target file, but I can't open it in Word. I get an error message mentioning an xml parsing error.

I tried all of the Word suggestions: opening it on an external hard drive to make there's enough space, opening and repairing, recovering text from any type of file. No luck with any of those.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

have you checked your tags in trados? an xml parsing error most likely means some tags have got messed up.
