OmegaT calls it "SV" but the TMX calls it "SV_SE"

Starting a new project in OmegaT, the only type of Swedish I can choose is "SV".

Fine by me, but customers send TMX files where the target language is Sweden-Swedish, "SV_SE". (As different from Finland-Swedish, SV_FI)

This has caused a lot of problems and for every problem I have invented a messy workaround but if OmegaT could just let me choose the target language "SV_SE" when starting a new project then it'd be directly compatible with the world outside.

Also, one thing that would be helpful is if someone knows a way to simply rename a language column in a TMX file. (Something cleaner than search-and-replace in Notepad).

Yes, but you can type anything you want.

As written above, just use the language code you want.

Haha, yes, I can just type and not use the dropdown menu. Insane that I didn't try it myself. Thanks a million for the answer!


(Not that I need it anymore, but it might still be interesting to know how to remove columns or change their names in a tmx. Olifant doesn't seem to do stuff like that.)
