    Default Changing the Language Pair of a TM

    Hi everybody!
    I have a question: How do you change the language pair of a TM?

    I need to change the pair English US-Spanish from Spain to English US-Spanish Modern Sort.

    Thank you all!

    Default Tm

    I'm afraid that each TM can only accept one pair of languages.

    In this case, I think that you should create a new TM.

    Hi,
    there is one way you can do this. These are the steps:

    - Export the TM. Now you will have a txt file
    - Open this txt in Word.
    - Make a search and replace changing the language settings. For example:

    if you have segments like this:
    <Seg L=EN-US>Network Interface Card Options:
    <Seg L=ES-ES>Opciones de tarjetas de red:

    ... and you want now to use ES-US, make a search and replace changing "ES-ES" to "ES-US"
    - After this, create a new tm now choosing the language pairs you want.
    - Import the txt into the just created TM

    I have used these process several times and it works properly.

    For Trados, language pairs are merely tags, this is why this should work.
