Dear all,

I have intially chosen Spanish, English and Swedish when working with Trados Studio but now need to add Danish, however the drop down boxes only allow me to add combinations or variations of the 3 language above (i.e. Spanish - Spain, Spanish Venezuela, English - Singapore, etc)

How can I add a completely new language to my options without having to reinstall the program?

Your help is much appreciated as I have project in Danish-Swedish due in today!

Many thanks in advance

Kind regards,

You will have to reinstall Sep 13, 2013

Hi Maria,

I had the same problem some time ago.
If you have the freelance version you will have to deactivate and reinstall the software.

See the answer I receveid from Steve:

Create new language pairs 2 Jul

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.

Hope this will help you

Kind regards
