An agency has sent me an SDL package but when I try to "Import SDL Package" into Wordfast Pro 5.13.0, I get an error message saying "Source locale es-x-mo-SDL is not supported".
I'm no expert, but.
It is my understanding that Wordfast Pro 5 supports only a very limited number of source and target languages. If the language is not in their list, you can't use it (and it won't work with a file that uses it). As far as I know, "es-x-mo-SDL" is a valid language code.
I don't think your client can change the language codes of a project in Trados in mid-project, so if your client wants to help you, they would have to recreate the project in Trados, and this time select a more primitive language code, e.g. "es". This is going to be a lot of work for them, though.
Alternatively, if you know how to open SDLXLIFF files in a text editor, you can unzip the SDLPPX file to get to the SDLXLIFF files and manually open them in a text editor and change the language codes to something that WFP5 will accept. This means that you can't import the SDLPPX file itself but need to work on the SDLXLIFF files as individual files.
My apologies Samuel, I didn't reply. I ended up getting quite bogged down in the issue and in the end the agency sent me the source document, which was a pain, but time was of the essence. Thanks for your kind help and advice.
