Hi everyone,
I have 2 .doc documents, one in English and its translation.
I'd like to import thme in tradso, I mean I'd like to align them. But when I choose "align a pair of files" in Trados and when I chooose my two documents, 2 errors appear. Is there another way to have the 2 documents aligned?
In fact, my client sent me a third document and there are many repetitions from the first one, thus I'd like to create a TM based on the translation of the first one. How can I do it?
I hope I'm clear... .
Thanks to all of you.
Laetitia

Suggestion Aug 25, 2014

Hello

There may be a glitch in your documents. I suggest you first save your document as raw text (texte brut) and try to align them as such.

Good luck.

Jean-Pierre
