How can I change the Source Language and Target Language in TM?

I cannot use the TM for translation because of the name of Source Language and Target Language does not match with my language pair.
I would like to change the name of Source Language and Target Language in TM.
The source and target language are English (United Kingdom) to Catalan (Catalan)
It should be English (United States) to Thai (Thai)

How can I do that?


Thank you very much.

I believe you need to export to TMX, use a suitable text editor (find/replace) to change the language codes and import back into Studio.

Thank you Dominique.
It's already in TMX format.

There's a (very) basic text editor included in Windows: Notepad. If your TMX is not too big, it may work for you. If not, you will have to get a more capable text editor. There are loads of them, both free and commercial. Google "free text editor for Windows" or ask for recommendations. I personally use a commercial editor called UltraEdit, but there are lots of good free ones that would be perfectly sufficient for your needs (find/replace).

Hi,

I thought it might be useful to let you know about a new application posted on the open exchange last week that will allow you to add any translation memory you like as a reference TM. You can only update TMs that match your Project languages exactly, but with this application you can add them for reference. So creating project templates that contain a TM cascade of all the flavours you use regularly might be a good option in future.

You can find the application here : http://goo.gl/OibDU

You can find an article on this application and it's use in project templates here : http://goo.gl/q4bDM

Regards

Paul

Opening the tmx in (free and freestanding) Olifant software (http://okapi-olifant.software.informer.com/) allows you to reverse languages of a TM.

Just export, import into a correct-language tradosmemory, and back Mar 27, 2014

I just had this problem and the editing advice didn't work, so I exported from Studio 2011 to TMX, created an empty memory in Trados workbench with the necessary language pair, imported from the TMX into the Trados memory - no checks made!!!.

I then exported from Trados to TMX - which now had the right language pair - and created a new memory in Studio for the language pair and imported that latest TMX file - really fast even on a large memory and worked fine.
