Hello,

my target language ist Brazilian Portuguese and now I got a project to be used as reference material whose target language is European Portuguese. Transit treats them as two completely different languages and the result is that it is not recognized as reference material.

I am not able/allowed to change the target language of my present project, but maybe I could change the target language of my reference material. What the best way of doing that without "destroying" the files related to the project I will use as reference material?

In other words, how do you translators for English manage this when, for example, your actual project has American English as target language but the reference material has British English?

I appreciate suggestions and ideas!

Kind regards,
Marcos

it is just the extension of the files you need to change (like *.ENG to *.ENU if going from uk to us English). You can give it a try and see if it works.
