Apologies if someone has already posted about this, but I don't seem to be able to find anything on this topic yet.

I've recently switched to Studio 2011 after working with 2009 for the last couple of years. I have just received an assignment for which the client specifies particular project and filter settings, which aim to differentiate between different TM matches depending on certain attributes by applying penalties. They have given me a WPS file to import, along with instructions on how to do this in TagEditor/Workbench.

As far as I can see from the Project Settings > Language Pairs > Translation Memory and Automated Translation > Penalties / Filters dialogue box in 2011, any filters applied have to be added manually; there is no option to import a WPS settings file. There also seems to be less flexibility when applying penalties to matches. I assume this is also the case with 2009, but this is the first time I have encountered this issue.

Does anyone happen to know if it is possible to import my WPS file to apply the client's required settings? I have looked through the documentation accompanying Studio 2011 to no avail. I would much rather use Studio than revert to TagEditor for this assignment because, despite a number of problems (including this one, if I fail to find a solution), Studio is a far superior tool.

Thanks in advance!
