Hello everyone
I am using Trados 2009 with SP1and WinAlign in Trados 2007.
I am trying to move a memory into the project window, in WinAlign so that I can align them.
This has not been productive, as when I open the Project and attempt to import, the window doe not work.
This is my first attempt at WinAlign usage.
I tried using .AutoSuggest in Trados 2009, but Trados tells me the files are too small.
Appreciate any help.

align is to match up source and target files Feb 4, 2010

WinAlign is for aligning translations that you've done without a CAT tool. So you'd align a source document and your translated document.
You can't align a TM because it's already beautifully aligned, segment by segment!

Oh yes, and you need a minimum of 25,000 translation units in a TM before you can create your own Autosuggest dictionary. One way to get around this is to merge a few TMs in order to reach that total.
