I work in Studio 2011 and I have a problem when I want to create new language pairs.
I have already created EN-NO and FR-NO but today I want to create SW-NO and in my dropdown list of source languages I do not have Swedish. Actually I can only choose between different English and French languages.
Are there any settings that I have to change? In that case where? Why is my dropdown list restricted to a couple of languages?
Thank you for your help.

Kind regards

You have a copy of Studio 2011 Freelance, which is limited to 5 different languages - which you choose upon installation. Looking at your list below, EN, NO and FR are 3 of your 5 languages, so you must have chosen 2 others, neither of which is Swedish.

If you need to change your chosen languages then I believe you will have to reinstall the software.

Hi Torill,

After checking I can confirm that yo use Studio 2011 Freelance- With this version it is important to install all languages that you will need (upto 5) during the installtion process.
If this was not the case, you need to deactivate and deinstall the software, then reinstall/activate adding when asked to do so up to 5 langauges.
Any created and maintained files/TM's will be untouched bt this action and can of course be used after the new installtion.
Hope this helps.
