O have a problem with Trados. I have to choose a pair of Source > Target languages. But I have a couple of "English" languages, like British, Amrtican, etc. But I need one English being a merged option of at least British plus American, if not all possible English versions merged, what would be the best option. Is it possible to merge those languages in Trados?

Which Trados version?
Are you trying to create a project, a TM, translate a single document...?

The problem occurs in Trados 2011 and 2014. When transkating documents from English to Polish I do not need to have separate British and American English as source languages. When i set American English the program corrects mistakes according to American rules. What else is set as American English I don't know.

Source language corrections? Jul 25, 2015

Hmm, I still don't understand.
Studio shouldn't correct mistakes in the source language.

If you're talking about Studio not allowing you to use a translation memory in another language variant, download the free app called AnyTM from Open Exchange.
http://www.translationzone.com/openexchange/app/sdltradosstudioanytmtranslationprovider-669.html
It'll work with Studio 2014. (Studio 2015 now comes with it out of the box, but with Studio 2014 you have to download it.)
AnyTM will let you use TMs in any language (even in the reverse direction), regardless of your project settings.

HTH,
Emma
