Does anyone know how to set the default language pair in Studio 2011 so that you can choose the language pair when you open a document in Studio 2011.

I use Studio 2011 with 4 different language combinations, but every time I open a document, the project that is subsequently created uses the language pair that what previously set. Then I get a message that the document "does not match the company's language pair".

How can I set it up so that no "default" language pair is set up, or I can choose one.

Hi David,

If you are using "Open Document" then when you do this you are prompted with the language pair drop downs so they can be changed before the document is opened. The default language pair is managed through Tools - Options - Editor - Languages

The only scenario I can think of where you get the message you have noted is if you are adding a document, a bilingual document (so the languages are already defined in the file) to an existing project where the languages used are different.

Maybe you can explain the process you are going through with a few simple steps so we can follow it through?
