I have prepared an alignment project of txt files and it seems to be correct. I export the project files and when I try to import them in TW the translation units seem to be invalid and are not added to the TM.

If I do that with previously aligned files importing is correct. It looks as if my current Winalign programme (recently re-installed) is not running correctly (though it apparently does so). How can I know where the problem is? I have plenty of paired bilingual files with urgent analysis and am currently blocked with this funny issue.

Any help is welcome.

Dear colleagues. I finally found out where the problem was. It was the Spanish language version. In the WinAlign project configuration I selected Spanish Spain and the Translation Memory had Spanish International Sort. Just a silly thing that made my head go crazy. Just to let you know if it ever happens to you...
