When I first installed SDL Trados 2007 I only added English, French and Spanish languages for Winalign, but now I urgently need to align a text from German into Spanish and I have no idea how to do it. Obviously German is not in my Wignalign "Source languages".

Any idea of how to do it??

Thanks a lot!!

Try defining the German text as English and see how it works. If the results are acceptable, export the TM in TMX format, open the TMX file in a text editor (e.g. Notepad) and carefully replace the English language id's with German ones.

Otherwise, you'll need to reinstall Trados.
