SDLXLIFF to Legacy Converter


I've installed this app, but I cannot use it. It constantly reports an error as in the attachment.

I am using SDL Trados Studio 2014 and I've installed the version "up to 2015".

Am I doing anything wrong?

Many thanks,

  • Hi Daniela,

    Perhaps make sure you have the very latest update for Studio 2014. I think the latest version was SDL Trados Studio 2014 SP2 - 11.2.4435.12

    Hello Paul,

    Thank you for your reply. Yes, I am running this version.

    Obviously, I should move to 2017 asap.

    And by the way, I've installed Verifika plugin, as you advised in one of my previous questions. I got informed the plugin was installed successfully but it needed the software. When I installed the software from their site, it asked me the licence key (?!).

    Is it free or not?

    P.S. ApSIC Xbench seemed too complicated to use, may be I am wrong.

    This problem occurs here too, with the same message. A reinstall or repair did not help. Application versions are correct (SDL Trados Studio 2014 SP2 - 11.2.4435.12, SdlXliffToLegacyConverter_Setup_1.0.0.48_SDLStudio2015).

    The same combination worked fine in Windows 7, this is with Windows 10.

  • I'm wondering if it may have something to do with the fact that .NET Framework 3.5 is not installed by default on Windows 10... one has to explicitly enable/install it somewhere in the Windows Components or what is its name...
    Is maybe .NET Framework 3.5 required by SDLXLIFF to Legacy Converter or one of the components it's using?
