Sorry, I'm virtually positive I've seen some information about this at some point, but I can't for the life of me figure out where.

I've been using TRADOS for about a year, but I've got one client I've been working with for three years or so. So I have a big pile of English and German files which I could use to create a TM with -- is there any way to do this before I waste a weekend playing with scripting? (Not that it would hurt me to do the scripting, it's just that I know I'd go scripting off into the sunset and not actually end up with a TM from my old files...)

Use winAlign Apr 2, 2004

WinAlign is rather easy to use. It aligns source and target files, and you can edit the result.

Well, duh. Apr 2, 2004

Thanks! I guess if I'd RTFM I would have figured that one out. Sheesh.
