Try to export/import Jun 2, 2003

Try to export the TM. Open it in MS Word, and do a search and replace. That might do the trick. If not, try to export to the tmx-standard before searching/replacing.

Define a new Trados TM, and import the export file.

Regarding the change of language in Trados; I do not have a clue why:)

I forgot to mention: You need Trados' codes for the different languages. If you don't know them, simply do en export after defining a new TM.

Thanks Jun 2, 2003

I exported the TM and substituted the PT-BR for PT-PT and imported the TM and everything was fine.
Thanks for your help.
