Dear team,

I am working in some alignement projects in Trados 2014 for some months and I would need a confirmation of the procedure.

Trados 2014 doesn't use an alignment file as other CAT tools and other Trados versions but it adds directly to the TM the source and target files.
Then, you have to fix the segments and there is no possibility of connecting segments but only delete the segments that doesn't match. The fact that you work directly in the TM seems very strange to me.

Am I understanding the procedure correctly or are there other way to align?

I really appreciate your help.

Thanks in advance

This article may explain a little:
