I've just finished a painful experience translating a Eng-Heb file on Transit PE - something I've done successfuly many times before.

From some point I got a strange error message:

"Unexpected Error at wintext.cpp 2425
(b-processRtl & 1) == [more funny characters following...]
Please make a note of the actions leading to this error...
Try to continue?"

I suffered many crashes as well.

I managed to finish all but 2 segments where I couldnt get rid of this problem at all.

Now, after finishing the 5000-word job, I can't find any .txf file in the relvant directory (after much saving throughout).


Thanks, Doron

.HEB file? Oct 18, 2007

Hi Doron,

TXF files are those that you create after finishing the job by clicking on Project > Send. Did you do this and no TXF was created? Is the monolingual file (*.HEB or the corresponding extension for Hebrew) still around? If it is, you have not lost your translation, and you should try exporting the project.

If that monolingual file is missing, you're in trouble.

I moved all the files to a laptop and managed to create the txf. Still, a few corrupted(?) segments cause this error message to appear every few seconds.

In the end, I let the client sort it out with their full version. Nothing heard so far, so it must have worked...

Thanks, Endre!
