Hello,

I have a .ttx file. The source language is English. I want to translate it into Arabic (UAE).

When I open it in Trados and choose Arabic (UAE), Trados says "The file contains target language
content in 'Arabic (Saudi Arabia)'. The file will be marked as reference".

However, when I choose Arabic (Saudi Arabia) as the target language, everything goes OK.

My problem now is how to translate the file with Arabic (UAE) being the target language ?

Regards,
Ali

Remove the target language entry from TTX Feb 2, 2012

Open the TTX file in Notepad.
Localise the entry TargetLanguage and remove anything between the quotes behind, leaving it like this TargetLanguage=""
Save the file and try again.

When I open the .ttx with Arabic (Saudi Arabia) as the target language, I note that some segments are pre-translated. I do not know why does this happen while I choose no TMs at all in the new project wizard?

How could I tell Trados NOT to use any TM?

Thank you. I only changed TargetLanguage="Ar" to TargetLanguage="" and it works well.

But I am afraid this could lead to problems? Because I am not sure what this is all about??

This was just a language name in TTX. Your Trados will place the Arabic you need.
