How to get rid of the “Failed to load built in plugin(s)” error in Xliff Editor

Unfortunately, errors happen in every program

We have caught a new error, this time in Xliff Editor, a text editor included in the Translation Workspace software package. Here’s what it looks like:

Failed to load built in plugin(s):

Failed to activate plugin: ... reason : ...

* * *

The error happens due to the wrong configuration of some plug-in (or plug-ins). It can be removed by reinstalling the whole software package that resets all the settings.

Follow these steps:

1.   Delete the programs (you may not have all of them installed):

  • Translation Workspace Client
  • Translation Workspace Word Client
  • Translation Workspace XLIFF Editor

2.   Delete the folders:

  • C:\Users\<User’s name>\AppData\Roaming\Translation Workspace
  • C:\Users\<User’s name>\AppData\Roaming\Translation Workspace XLIFF Editor
  • C:\ProgramData\Translation Workspace XLIFF Editor
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Lionbridge\Translation Workspace XLIFF Editor or C:\Program Files\Lionbridge\Translation Workspace XLIFF Editor
  • Go to the C:\Users\<User’s name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP folder and delete the template files of and WorkspaceForWord.dotm
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office##\STARTUP

3.   Then, download the latest versions of these programs from the Lionbridge website and install them in the following order:

  • Translation Workspace Client
  • Translation Workspace XLIFF Editor
  • Translation Workspace Word Client
