When I used Trados 2007 I made the mistake of setting parameters as "English" and "Spanish for Argentina."
I'm working with Trados 2009 and one of my main clients sends me packages. But the languages ​​of your translation memories are "English" and "Spanish from Spain", so I can not use my own memory. I already tried to import my old memory, but it was not possible because, actually, Trados "thinks" they are different languages.
I believe that this is a major problem of this software, because these variants are basically lexical, but this is for another discussion.
Does anyone have an idea of ​​how you fix it?
Thank you.
Regards Paula

Export as *.tmx Jun 11, 2012

Hi Paula,

Export your TM as *.tmx - open in Wordpad and replace the Argentinian acronym with the Spanish one - sorry it's not my language combination, so I don't know what they are - works fine with the language variants in French. Import the modified tmx into Trados 2009 and you're done.

You can use the same procedure if the source combination is different, i.e. en-gb or en-us.
