Hi:
I've created a translation memory but TRADOS doesn't recognize the target language. It shoul be English to Spanish, but instead Spanish the target segment appears in English.
Thank you very much in advance.
Best regards,
Jose Seco

Empty Spanish? Aug 23, 2011

May I ask how can you tell the language of an empty segment?

I've just created an English to Spanish translation memory. I've begun to translate with the first segment and the language of this segment is English. It's like an English to English??? memory!!!

Hi Jose Aug 23, 2011

My best guess is that you have simply clicked En by mistake instead of Es. I would suggest going to the project options, removing the existing TM and creating a new one instead.

Even the flags are ok.
Don't worry, I'll try to fit the target or translate and then select language once document is clean.
Thanki,
Jose Seco

Then it is really strange Aug 23, 2011

However, I think that all the same, it would be much easier to recreate the project and the TM than to fix things afterwards.

One more thing! Aug 23, 2011

Check in the project settings, check if your new TM is set up for all language pairs.
