It's not sufficient to just right-click and rename it, but I must open the project file and somehow give it another name. I have a batch 2 of this project now with exactly the same name, and it has created a lot of trouble for me. If I only could rename it I would finally be able to get on with the translation.

Hi Fredrik,

1) In Projects view, right-click on the project
2) Choose Project Settings
3) Under Project, go to Name
4) Change the project name
5) Click OK

Best of luck!

For project files... Feb 18, 2017

For renaming a project see above in Miguel's post.
For project files, there is AFAIK no direct way to rename them once they are imported, they take the name of the original file and add a sdlxliff extension. The best way is to simply import a file where you have changed the name, but be careful! Do not delete project files in a hurry without making sure you have updated your TM with all the translations you have done with them (else your unconfirmed translations get lost if you delete the files!)
Do the following:
On your current project file (with the 'wrong' name), make sure you update the TM with all translations done
Copy your original file and change to the name you want; import it by including pre-translation.
If you see that the newly imported file is really complete, all your previous translations are marked 100% or perfect matches, then you can delete the previous project file.

[EDIT]
Alternative solution removed.

Greets,
Mike
