Hello everyone,

I apologise if this has been asked before.

I'm using Studio 2014 and I have a project into Portuguese (Portugal). The problem is that the client sent me a TM with the target language set as Brazilian Portuguese, although the TU are actually in pt-PT. Is there a way I can change the target language in this TM, and be able to create a pt-PT project and add my own TM to it? Or do I have to create a project with pt-BR as target language?

Thank you for your help!

Regards,

Catarina Lopes

We have an App that may help you. Dec 9, 2014

Hi Catarina,

Unfortunately you cannot change the target language of the TM and you would need to have selected Brazilian Portuguese as one of the languages you translate with when you originally set up the software, if you would like to use the TM provided.

However, your scenario is not uncommon and we have the following app that you can download from our OpenExchange web site -

http://www.translationzone.com/openexchange/app/sdltradosstudioanytmtranslationprovider-669.html#65697

This app will enable you to use any TM with your project, therefore should rectify this problem for you.

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards,

Thank you so much, Steven.

That was really easy to do and it solved the problem.

Now I can create my pt-PT project and use both my TM and the client's.

Have a great week!
