Hi, I have just bought trados studio 2015 STARTER and need to translate German to English. I indicated that language pair on setup. However I am unable to add any translation memory. The system always says "The translation provider does not support any language pair or language template in this project". What does that mean ? Why can't I add or open the English/German translation memory ??
Thanks for your help !

Different language variants? Oct 2, 2015

With the Starter version you'll be using the "translate single document" workflow.
I expect the TM you want to add has a different language variant from the pair you selected in the set-up process for the single document (e.g., EN-GB instead of EN-US).

You might find it helpful to follow the steps in this blog post:

The screenshots are from Studio 2014, but it applies to 2015 too.

TM not addable Oct 2, 2015

Thanks Emma,

that's what I thought, and I checked. The document is setup as "German -> English (UK). " in the project settings. The TM available as a file is "English-German" but when I try to use it, to add it via the project settings, it just comes up with a little window telling me "The translation provider does not support any language pair in this project. Consider using AnyTM....". But AnyTM is inactive in the starter version of SDL....
really dont know what to do, will have a look at the link you sent, thank you again !

Thanks, that did not work either. Different message though: "The translation provider does not support this language pair".

AnyTM in Starter version Oct 2, 2015

Right, so you're trying to add a TM in the reverse direction. As Studio has warned you, you can't do that unless you use AnyTM.

The Starter version has AnyTm according to this product comparison:
http://www.translationzone.com/products/sdl-trados-studio/index-tab2.html

You can only use one TM in the Starter version, so if you've already added a TM, then maybe that's why this option is greyed out now.

If you haven't added a TM at all to your project, go to Project Settings>Language Pairs>All Language Pairs>Translation memories>Add>AnyTm:Any file-based TM.
