Hi,
I have a customer who has decided to go with US English instead of UK English.
How can I adjust my TM to suit, i.e. from German-UK English to German-US English?

Thanks for any tips.

Changing of TM language Sep 24, 2004

1. Export the TM to a text file.
2. Open the txt file in Word.
3. Search and replace "Seg L=EN-GB" with "Seg L=EN-US".
4. Create a new TM with the relevant language combination.
5. Import the changed txt file.

Export, Edit, Import Sep 24, 2004

Hallo!

This is no perfect solution:

Export your TM into a text file. Open this txt file in Notepad and change the language identificator from EN-GB into EN-US by Find/Replace. Then, go to workbench and set up a new TM. Import the new entries.

Why so complicated? Ooops Sep 24, 2004

Simply export your TM to a text file.
Then create a new TM with reversed languages (be sure you use the same languages, ie EN-GB and DE-DE) and import the exported TM into this one. So you have reversed your TM without any trouble.

One should better read the posts and not only the subjects in mails - sorry.
In that case follow the advice with replacing language names in exported file. This does work very good.
