Sorry, I'm virtually positive I've seen some information about this at some point, but I can't for the life of me figure out where.

I've been using TRADOS for about a year, but I've got one client I've been working with for three years or so. So I have a big pile of English and German files which I could use to create a TM with -- is there any way to do this before I waste a weekend playing with scripting? (Not that it would hurt me to do the scripting, it's just that I know I'd go scripting off into the sunset and not actually end up with a TM from my old files...)

Use winAlign Apr 2, 2004

WinAlign is rather easy to use. It aligns source and target files, and you can edit the result.

Thanks! I guess if I'd RTFM I would have figured that one out. Sheesh.
