Hello, I am trying to work on a ttx document in TagEditor, but it's giving me an error that it can't interface with the TM in Translator's Workbench. So then I realized that is because the languages are backwards in the ttx document itself (correct in the new TM I opened). How do I fix this? Or do I have to set the TM languages backwards, too? TIA.

Open the TTX in Notepad or another text editor. The working languages are specified in tags between quotes "EN-US" or "FR" (I'm not sure about the correct language acronyms for French, could be FR-FR). Do a search and replace for those - it will be safer if you check the capitalization option and use the quotes as well. You might need to replace e.g "EN-US" with "XYZ", then "FR" with "EN-US" and "XYZ" with "FR" so that you don't replace what is already correct.

Use any text editor that handles Unicode Jun 30, 2010

Any text editor will do for this task, provided that it can open and save files in Unicode (UTF-16 is the encoding that TTX files use)

Regards,

I did the work in the reversed language pair Jun 30, 2010

...the agency just sent back to me a ttx file with the correct language pair, in which I was able to make some minor corrections - so they are all set.

Thank you for your responses as this is good to know for future reference (though I'm hoping this wouldn't happen again anyway)icon_smile.gif
