Hi everyone.

I need some advice rather urgently. I'm using TRADOS 5.5 and would like to add a new language so that I can create a translation memory from this language into English. Is there any way I can do this without reinstalling the software completely? And if I am forced to reinstall the software, does it mean my existing translation memories would get wiped?

MTIA for any useful tips you can provide.

Best Regards

Which version? Oct 29, 2003

Hi Rowan,
Unfortunately, you did not specify which version of T5.5 you're using - LSP or Freelance?

Oh yes, sorry about that. It's Freelance.

I have actually ended up uninstalling it and then reinstalling it with the new language added. Fortunately, this process went smoothly and I didn't lose any existing memories. But it seemed to be the only way I could do it. However, if anyone knows of a less drastic method, I'd still be interested to learn of it.

Best Regards

I had the same problem the other way round. I used the \"TRADOS REPAIR\" function instead of removing and reinstalling it and it was a disaster both times until I found out the problem: it installed languages like Polish without asking me which languages I wanted.
So then my memories would not work!!
