I received a translation to perform but it comes as language Spanish LA.
Cant find that in the TRADOS list.(Spanish International Sort, and one for each country, but no general LA spanish).
What is to be done in this case?

Thank you for your help Ivan. I understand that LA stands for Latin American Spanish.
But the problem is that in my version of TRADOS there is no such a language. I find a International Sort of Spanish, and the on for each country (UY for Uruguay, AR for Argentina and so on).
The TM I received has its files with LA, and when I choose the destination language, I get a rejection because LA does not match with any selection.
I ended up changing the name of the TM files. But dont think that this is the proper procedure, specially working in a group.

Hope that my problem is clearer now.

best regards
