Hi, I wonder if anyone can tell me if this is possible, and how.

I have a Chilean Spanish TM that I created for a given project, and since I've been working on it, I have found that there is nothing Chilean about it, it should be in my straight Spanish one. I tried a normal export/import, but the import (understandably) is rejected due to different source languages.

Is there a way round it?

Thanks!

There may be differences... Jun 19, 2013

... you are not aware of due to how placeables or variables are handled in this flavour. There may not be any differences in your content either... but it's hard to know!

So you could use the AnyTM app from the openexchange which allows you to use the Chilean TM as a read only TM in addition to using your Spanish TM for update. This is useful because you can create project templates that are set up already and then you never have to mess around with the TMs irrespective of which language flavour you work in.

You can find an article on this here : http://wp.me/p2xDjK-lu

If you don't want to do that then export to TMX and change the language codes with a text editor. So look for es-CL and replace with es-ES.

Regards

Paul

Thanks, Paul Jun 20, 2013

The read-only option is very interesting Paul, thanks. I also suspected I might be able to edit the exported files, but certainly didn't want to venture into that without advice!

As you say, there may be differences I am not aware of, so I shall certainly look at the AnyTM app.

Thanks for all your help, as ever
