Hi all,

I have translated a simple Word file from English into Italian without using Trados 7 (because I could not access my PC). How can I create now an unclean file in TagEditor using the Italian target Word file and the original English file? (I have a TM but it did not contain useful segments for this text. I just need to update it at the end of the translation).

Thanks a lot for your kind help!

You can use Winalign to align the two documents and then go to File > Export file pair (or Export project) and you will get a txt with which you can update your TM.

If it is necessary to create a Tageditor file, after you update the TM you can translate the file (Tools > Translate in Workbench) using the updated TM and you should have an 100% translated file.
