Hi folks,
I know that multiple-target language projects are possible, but so far, multiple source language projects are NOT possible... Is there a way to do this WITHOUT opening a new project?

benefits? Dec 5, 2013

Hi Omer,

I don't use Studio, so I don't know if it possible in the latest version 2014 but why do you want to create projects with multiple source languages? To simplify project management or to benefit from already available translations in other languages?

Please have a look at AFAIK the only CAT tool supporting this feature is OmegaT.

I am sure that Igor, developer of CafeTran can add this feature in a nightly build if requestedicon_smile.gif

german-english mixed docs Dec 5, 2013

Merhaba Selçuk,

we get many documents which include German and English text, so opening 2 different projects for the same file is cumbersome. It would be nice to select to be able to change the TM/language pair mid-document, at will. This is actually possible in pre-Studio Trados (if you work directly in Word instead of Tageditor) or Wordfast or similar "work in Word with a template" type CAT tools.

I gather, this is not possible in "import into specific format, work on it, export into original format" type CAT tools, be it Trados Studio, DejaVu, memoQ etc.

thanks anyway..
