I'm looking for a way to change the default exported file names.

Specifically, Wordfast Pro names exported files that have been translated to English as "XYZ_EN"

My French clients want the files to be named "XYZ_ANG"

Is there a setting where the default can be changed?

Thanks for your help

Hi Samuel,

This is not possible. I would recommend using Automator on Mac to change this for you automatically. I've done this in the past and it works well, especially if you have 30 file names to change!

I don't know what the equivalent would be for PC.

Kind regards,
