Save as / Save Copy as? May 12, 2016

Hi Janaina,

can you do
File > Save Target as, and then chose a different file name?
File > Advanced Saving > Save Copy as, and then chose a different file name, then try saving the target again based on that one?

(SW options backtranslated from German, exact UI may vary)

ETA: You can also rename the original (source-language) SDLXLIFF file, pretranslate it from your TM, and try creating the target from that one.
