Hi,

I have been translating InDesign files with SDL Trados v7.5 and when I try to do a cleanup I get the following error message:

(-2147467259): File not found or not in InDesign CS2 format.

Does anyone know what this means?

Thank you for any help you might be able to give.

Best regards,

Tanja

Hi Tanja

The other day I was having a similar problem, and it was something as simple as this: the name "InDesign" in the sentence "TRADOS InDesign Filter 1.0.0.0", that appears inside the files, was written as "indesign". So I opened the tag editor file in wordpad, corrected indesign to InDesign, saved the file and the problem was solved.

It's worth trying, if you haven't found a solution yet.

It means there is no source INX file in the same folder and Workbench cannot save translated INX file.
