Hi all,

I've read the help topic in Studio 2014 about adding files, but it doesn't work for me. Here what I need on a regular basis:

I get packages from my client, usually with several Word files. What I need is to be able to add my own Word file (created from some other files that contain updates only and therefore are not part of the project) to the project in order to Open For Translation all of them at once (multiple files option). But when I add a file to a project with Add Files button, SDL doesn't open any of project's file for translation. Probably, I miss some step in the process. Do you have any suggestion? I hope my explanation is clear enough.

Thank you,

Prepare file Jan 14, 2015

After adding the new file to your source language list of files, right click it, select batch tasks and then "prepare" or "prepare without project TM". Follow the wizard.
