I have received a TM from my client that is a txt file. Although the source language itself is correct, it is incorrectly coded as Danish instead of Swedish. Is there any way to convert the coding in the txt file so I can import it or is the only solution to contact the client for a corrected file (which I have done, but no one will be in the office for another hour).

search and replace Jun 12, 2006

Open the text file, and do a search & replace of the target language.

E.g.:

My TM's are in the ENGLISH > ARGENTINE SPANISH pair

Torque
Par torsor

I want them to be in MEXICAN SPANISH

Thus I replace every segment "ES-AR" by "ES-MX".

Torque
Par torsor

You can follow a similar procedure if you know the Target language code (what Hans calls "identifier").

Regards
