Opening files to translate
Thread poster: dougjkelly
Mar 20, 2013

I'm having trouble opening a new project to translate. I go through the process to create a new project, then I get to the point where I import the files for translation. The window with 'Project Files' opens with the selected files for import and nothing happens. According to the instruction manual I should then go autmatically to commence the translation but nothing happens. Am I doing something wrong?

Is your source document in a format that OmegaT supports? E.g., not .doc but rather .docx

I've worked it out now Mar 21, 2013

Thanks for your suggestion.
The editor mini-window thing was closed. I don't know why it was closed and it doesn't say anything about the fact it can close. For any other newbies who encounter a similar problem, if you click on the bottom there are some tabs like 'dictionar', 'glossary' etc. Click on the 'editor' one.

In case you have lost some panes, etc., you can always get back to a standard situation by using Options > Restore Main Window.
