Dear friends,

I want to import a TM into my main TM. However, I want to add a field to each imported translation unit (e.g. “Source: Align”), so that I can later still know the origin of these units. I haven’t found a way to do this. Does anybody know the solution?

Thanks

Apply Field Values Jun 22, 2017

The import wizard has an Apply Field Values option under General Import Options. Studio's help explains what this is:

Apply Field Values
If the translation memory you are importing into has custom fields, you can specify what values should be placed in these fields for the imported translation units.
Click Edit to display the Field Values dialog box. For each field, specify or select a value and click OK.

only for already existing fields Jun 22, 2017

Thanks you, Nora. I have seen this option, but there, I can only choose from the already existing fields. I cannot create a new field.

Change user ID Jun 22, 2017

If all segments in your 'a TM' have only one user id, you can export that TM into a tmx and open it with Notepad.
Replace all "My-user-id" (whatever it is) with "ALIGN" for example. Save the tmx file and import it to your main TM. The user id will be ALIGN for all segments from that TM.
