Hi Everyone!

I'm using Trados Freelance 7 and I am having trouble in changing the target language of a ttx file.
I just started using tag editor and I don't have a clue how to change the target language.
It all started when my client sent me the ttx file in Tagalog. For some reason, I couldn't open the ttx and the error code 40005 appears. So they sent me the Indonesian file to work on, but gave me instructions to change the target language to Tagalog first on the file.

Thank you in advance.

Joy

if I understood you correct Jun 21, 2007

I don't know if I understood you correct, but perhaps the problem is the following:

Windows (and Trados) knows the target language "Indonesian" as id-ID (TradosTag = ID). As far as I know it doesn't know Tagalog.
So I don't know the TradosTag name for Tagalog.

What you can do is to change in the header of the .ttx-file the 'TargetLanguage="ID"' to the corresponding value for Tagalog and change all occuring '', too.

So you change the target language of the document and of every translation unit in the doc.
You best do this with a text editor that supports unicode and mass replace.


This worked fine for me when I expected a Spanish (Modern sort) document and got a Spanish (Spain) ... (I had to change "ES-ES" to "ES-EM")

Thanks Rahvin! You understood perfectly.
Fortunately, my client sent me a new ttx in Tagalog..!

sorry Jun 22, 2007

for those who are interested in: in my prior post there was an error because this forum tried to "understand" the tags that i wrote.

Here's the correct way to change:

What you can do is to change in the header of the .ttx-file the 'TargetLanguage="ID"' to the corresponding value for Tagalog and change all occuring ' Tuv Lang="ID" ', too

Now it should work.
