I am translating an indesign-file (.)inx that I have converted in Tag-editor. After some pages translated, I tried to convert the file back in Indesign, in order to see if it works or not.. and naturally, it doesn't work!

I obtain the message above.

I have seen a lot of forums on google about this error message, but did not find out how to resolve it (I am not a developper and don't understand their language!!). I only know it is a problem of memory size, but where??!

Who can help me??

Thanks in advance

Eloïse, disappointed :S

Dear Enotet

There is a knowledgebase article at the support portal of SDL:

Error String: Error "(-2147467259): java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space" opening large INX file in TagEditor

To enable TagEditor to handle large INX files, please apply this solution.

1. Find file PluginFileFilterDefinitions.xml in C:\Program Files\SDL International\T2006\TT folder (the path may vary depending on the version and edition of the SDL Trados product).
2. Open the file in a text editor, such as WordPad or TextPad.
3. Under the tag and above the series of entries add the following set of definitions that would set the size of Heap space.


4. Save the file and try opening the INX file again.
5. If it is still not enough, you can increase the size of Heap space further by changing the value of attributes:
This size, however, would require at least 1GB of RAM.
