Hi all.

I am working on Trados Studio 2021.

I need to import the content of a en-US>it TM into a it>en-GB TM in order to update the latter with new useful units.
The former was wrongly set as US at the beginning.
As suggested in other posts, I exported the en-US>it TM into TMX, opened the TMX with Notepad++ editor and replaced all "en-US" codes with "en-GB", saved the modified TMX and tried to re-import the TMX into the en-GB>it TM. Trados read all the units

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks much in advance for your help.

Use "any file based TM" Nov 5, 2020

Do you need to import the en-US TM?
Could you not just add it to the project using "use any file based TM" ?

Yes, I need to import it Nov 5, 2020

Hi Mark.
I have a en-US>it TM and a it>en-GB TM.
My initial mistake (selecting US instead of UK) in the former has messed things up a little bit: this is why I have just created a new en-GB>it MT where I was able to import the it>en-GB TMX, but the issue remains the other way around because I apparently cannot import the en-US TM anywhere.
Your option is good (thank you) maybe to make sure that all TMs are taken into account when translating, despite my mistakes, but it does no

Your option is good (thank you) maybe to make sure that all TMs are taken into account when translating, despite my mistakes, but it does not enable to keep the two TMs aligned and in order.
Any other idea?

Here's an idea Nov 5, 2020

This idea may work if you have all the sdlxliff files that relate to the en-US>IT TM.

Create a new project in en-US>IT.

Add all the translated en-US sdlxliff files.

Select the en-GB>IT TM using "use any filed based TM".

Click on "update all TMs".

The content of the sdlixliff files should be directly imported into the en-GB TM.

I was gonna say that. Using bilinguals to update TMs, instead of TMX files, is way much easier.
