Hi there,

I've just re-installed Trados 2007 having bought a new computer.

When trying to align two files, I only have the option of French and Spanish for both the source and target files. How can I change the settings to include English?

Many thanks,

What languages did you select during installation? Nov 16, 2011

I would have thought that whichever languages you selected when installing the product should at least be available.

Having said that. When I installed Trados Studio 2011, it "forced" me to select 5 languages and when I open WinAlign only four of them are available... I would be interested to hear feedback on that.

Perhaps the solution to your problem is to align the documents with the options you have available and edit the export file at the end.

I'm not sure how much work it would involve, but maybe it is possible to search/replace the language tags in the TXT-export with the ones you actually want.
