Dear all,

I am also struggling to align a pair of files in order to build a TM for further translations purposes.
The Align tool is very slow, some functions such as "connect" are greyed-out and I basically can't carry on like this.

I have to "align" those documents in order to create a TM which a client needs.

Now, is there a way to insert the content of source and target documents in a TM, without the need to align them first in SDL Studio? That would be great!

Thank you very much for your precious input!

Manually make TM Jul 27, 2016

I know you can manually do it in .dox file and then update TM in Trados 2007 workbench. But it's also troublesome.

A brilliant tool, especially if formatting isn't important. Freeware available from multiple sources, e.g. https://sourceforge.net/p/aligner/wiki/Home/
