I have created a new TM in Trados 2009 (Version and am attempting to import aligned segments from a WinAlign project (WinAlign Version 8.0 Freelance). However, Trados 2009 only imports a very small number of segments I have aligned, even though they are aligned properly, have been committed as aligned and WinAlign statistics show them as being aligned.

For example, one project has around 500 confirmed aligned segments (as per WinAlign Statistics), yet Trados 2009 will only import 66.

Does someone know why that is, and more importantly, how to fix it? Do I have to change one of my settings perhaps ...
