Hello,

I created a EN-PT(Br) memory by importing some files I had aligned with winalign. These files are made of en-pt translations.

My question is: Can I do the inverse? Can I add to the same memory files that I translated from pt into en? Can a translation memory work both ways? en-pt and pt-en?

thanks!

A TM is only one-way Mar 12, 2011

The TM is only used in one direction while you are translating, in your case from EN to PT. But a TM is reversible, meaning that you can also import your PT-EN texts into your EN-PT memory.

The import function automatically puts the TUs in the right place.
