SUMMARY:  I'm getting the message "Translator client not found." when saving from a FM binary to XML
ISSUE:  You're getting the message "Translator client (ditafm_app) was not found." when saving a FM binary file to XML.
SOLUTION:  That's most likely because the binary file was original created with the default FM8 DITA structure application (DITA-Topic-FM), and your structure application is referencing the "ditafm_app" client as the ApiClient for that application. If you're using DITA-FMx you have disabled the ditafm_app client .. so it can't find it.

To solve this problem, you can import the DITA-FMx-Topic EDD (or whatever application you're using) into the FM binary files .. or .. choose the StructureTools > Set Structured Application command to specify the application before saving to XML.
