I received a TM from a client that is FRFR-ENUS for Studio. However, my translation project is from ENUS to FRFR. When I try to create a project, it tells me that it is impossible due to langage inconsistency between the TM and the project. Is there anyway to switch the content of the TM so that it becomes ENUS-FRFR.

I use Studio 2011.

Thanks in advance for your help on this!

Download SDLTmReverse from OpenExchange is the easiest way.

Just noticed that it was only available for 2014, my mistake there's also a version for 2009/11.

Alternatively, export as tmx, create an new TM with the right combination and import tmx.

... or alternatively use the AnyTM plug-in, which allows you to work with the TM in the reverse direction without explicitly having to convert it:
