Hi, does anybody how can I add a language to my language combination in Trados 2015? I have set NL (DU) as target, but would like to add NL (BE), as I often receive packages to translate in NL (BE). I understood that by setting NL (DU) the BE variant would automatically be recognised, but I find myself often in a situation with translations into NL (BE) and no spelling control. Thanks!

Reinstalling? May 5

At least with the old Trados you had to reinstall the software to be able to change the languages you wanted to use. I regretably don't know if there is any better way in Studio.

It seems, though, that a reinstallation doesn't take very long, so I think that road should be feasible.

Repair the installation May 5

In Windows, Control Panel, Programs and Features - Install or change a program,
right-click on SDL Trados Studio 2015 and select Repair.

You can add both variants of Dutch as two of your 5 languages. This way, you get the spellcheckers, but may need to use separate TMs.

It may not be worth it.

All variants already available May 5

I'm pretty sure that when you install one language, all its variants are automatically available.
You need to set up separate projects for each language variant, each with its own TM. That way Studio will launch the correct language variant in the spellchecker.

So, no reinstallation should be needed. Sandra's suggestion of carrying out a repair in Windows Control Panel should work if you want to add a different language altogether.
