I converted a TM from Trados for Wf. Now when I reorganize the TM in Wf (5.0), I get a message: 5 TU found with language code longer than 5 characters. Search for DE-DE in order to locate the first bad TU.

But when I look at the TM in an editor, all looks fine, there is no unit that looks strange. And the TM works alright.
I thinik at least the message should tell the number of the unit instead of this cryptic text.

Any experience?

I have experienced this as well, and I opened the TM in Excel. Doing this helped a lot to spot the error, and it was then quite easy to fix.

Good luck.
