I have an English - Serbian project, yet I cannot open the file although Serbian is one of my supported languages.
It seems that Trados has a language bug (again!) - when I install Serbian (Serbia and Montenegro), other variants of Serbian are not supported.
I normally use Serbian ehen I create the files, but sometimes I can't open Serbian files created by customers in my Trados 2011 (although I can open Croatian files created by the same customer).
I cannot and WILL NOT re-install Trados each time I have to use Serbian - and that does not work either - it seems that the only files that can be opened are those in Serbia and Montenegro variant.

Studio Freelance supports only 5 language pairs Aug 13, 2014

If you have Freelance.

The only way is, when needed, to remove one of 5, and add one you want. Later on, to remove that one, and add former.

sr-Latn-CS (Latin - Former Serbia and Montenegro)
sr-Latn-RS (Latin - Serbia)

You can use TMs for both, just by replacing language code in Tm exports.
