Hi All,

am having some trouble creating proofreading jobs in Trados. Basically I would like to also see my proofreading jobs in calendar so that I can track their due dates along with translation projects, however Trados won't allow me to create projects in which the source and target language are identical. Anyone have ideas on how to go about setting up such proofreading projects?

Cheers

Use language variants Jan 31, 2009

Perhaps create a project in which the source and target languages are close variants, and not the same - for example the source language might be English (Ireland) and the target English (United States). As long as your import file has the correct details, this should work. You may need to manually edit the text file to be imported (amend all the lines).

creating/tracking a proofreading job Jan 31, 2009

Thanks for the tip. I thought of that one , too, but wanted to know if there was a way to set up a project in Trados so that source and target language are the same ... I also wish to track turnover for proofreading jobs vs. translation jobs.
Any other tips in getting Trados to accept identical source and target languages, or else set up a pure proofreading job? Would appreciate any help.
