Hello everyone, my apologies if this has been covered before...

have a large job I'm about to start, German to English, and the client has previously done a lot of work for the same client English to German and has sent me an export from their English-German TM.

Is there any way to reverse the language direction of an export file during import or to reverse the language direction of a fresh TM having imported an export file? Is there any way I can make this of use?

Sorry, should have added, I'm using Trados 2006

Thanks in advance!

Just import Feb 9, 2007

Hi Emma,
Simply import the exported file into a TM with reverse directions.

Just to see how forum search works, search for "reverse TM", restricting your search to this forum.


Best regards,
Ralf

Thanks and apologies Feb 9, 2007

Thanks Ralf - thought it might have come up before I will confess I'm always hesitant about using search functions as IME they usually either turn up nothing, or so many threads that it's still impossible to find what you want. My apologies and thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
