I'm editing a file in SDLX and I have to use a termbase (not a Multiterm termbase, a tdb file) with some terms that should remain untranslated. But both the project and the SDLX TM use one Sub-Language (Spanish - Modern), while the termbase is in a different Sub-Language (Spanish, Latin America) so I get no matches.

I don't know how to change the languages of a termbase. Still, I would like to be able to use that termbase in my project without having to change anything. Is that possible?
