Hello everybody,

I have the following problem:

I work with SDL Trados 2007 and I want to start using Trados for a client. In order to build up my TM, I aligned with WinAlign previous translations and created an export of the alignment.

Whenever I try to import the TM export into my new created TM, I get the information that the import was successful, 0 segments are updated, 0 segments added and that 1250 segments are invalid.

The language settings of the TM and the export are matching, both are English (USA) and Spanish (Spain). Could the problem be related to the special character "ñ" and the acents in Spanish? Do I have to set a special font in my TM for that?

Is there anybody who can help me?

All the best,

... if you send me the file you have been working on. It would be easier to figure out what's wrong - special characters etc are definitely not the reason for it.
