My question might be a stupid one, but I wonder whether it is possible to add a second (or third…etc.) TM and/or file to an existing and active project.

Sometimes, customers send further files to be translated or even TMs so it would be quite nice if that was possible. I have not yet found out, if this option exists and until now I have simply recreated the whole project, adding all the TMs and files that have arrived later icon_frown.gif

Does anybody know the trick?

Have a nice day …icon_smile.gif

Very easy Dec 2, 2010

Select the project and then in the "files" view change to the source language (top left). Click on "File", then "Add files". Click on Batch tasks and "prepare". Change back to target language. The file should now appear among the project files.
For TMs just click on project settings in the Editor view and you can add/remove TMs.

Not a silly question at all Dec 24, 2010

Hello Heike,

This was not a silly question at all. I was having the same problem. The documentation isn't a whole lot of help, but this forum is.
