I have a really large file to align (33.000 words, 3 MB). It is not possible to align the two files with Winalign:
- it is very slow
- at the end of the alignment it does not react anymore or close itself.

What can I do?

Thank you.

... I have a really large file to align (33.000 words, 3 MB)...

This means a lot of segments you will have to check. Doing it in one piece is risky - and WinAlign suffocates under the load anyhow. Cut the source up in ten pieces and you will have no problems - aligning and checking the alignment later on.

I love alignment of files. If language pair is EN, IT, GE( DE), FR, SP (ES), JP, I may do it for you quickly and accurately. Will you not hire me? I certain instance, I do 33,000 words in 1 days!
