Hello! I'm having a hard time trying to change my language pair on SDL Trados 2014. I'm working on a single document translation. My document is set-up to translate from US>Spanish (Mexico), but I'm trying to change this to Spanish (Costa Rica). This is what I'm doing while project is open in editor view:

Project setting>Language Pairs> when i try to click on the language that I want it doesn't let me add it. It's grayed out.

Please, help me. I've been troubleshooting this for a couple days now. Can't figure it out.

... you can't change the language of an existing Project, or existing SDLXLIFF.

Regards

Hello pgschreier,

We maintain language specific translation memories and Trados provides good controls to prevent mistakes. So I would not like to see sublanguages eliminated. But it is good to be able to ignore them sometimes for pretranslation and analysis and we use an OpenExchange tool called AnyTM for this.
