I translate from Danish, Norwegian, and Spanish into English. Whenever I create or use a Norwegian>English termbase, it always shows the wrong language order; i.e., English into Norwegian in stead of Norwegian into English. In the Termbase application I can just switch the language direction around by clicking on the arrow, but when using a Termbase within Trados Studio 2009, it only populates the terms in the "wrong" language and does not show any term matches in the term recognition field.

This only happens with my Norwegian into English term bases. I thought that perhaps it had to do with "English" preceding "Norwegian" in alphabetical order -- but that would also be the case with Spanish>English, yet I do not experience this problem with that language combination (nor with Danish or Swedish into English).

I have tried re-creating the termbases, but to no avail.

If anyone has any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it.
