Hi everyone, I'm puzzled. Please help!

I'm slowly beginning to get translation jobs, but so long has passed since I studied SDL, i no longer know how to use it.

I have been given a ST and a TT for LQA (Quality Assessment/Revision). The ST and TT are separate files (i.e. not a bilingual document). I need to review / edit the target text, so I can track the changes and send the revised file back the translator. How can I do this in SDL Trados.. there must be way no? So my only solution is to copy and paste each sentence into the corrosponding TT segment. But this is clearly NOT practical!

Am I missing something? I have tried everything, and I can't find a way to populate the TT segments, I have the ST and I have the TT... is there no way to import the standalone TT for editing?

Please help. Thank you so kindly in advance.

Kindest regards
