How do I create a new project in Explorer?
In order to create a new project In Explorer, a folder containing a subfolder associated with the source locale and a subfolder associated with the target language must exist, and the source locale folder must contain one or more source files.

Moreover, the Translation Memory, Term Database and File Types need to be set under the target language folder by right-clicking the target folder and selecting Properties.

Finally, there must be a linkage between the source and target folder. This can be set manually by following the instructions in this article.

While you can create these settings from scratch in Explorer by creating a new File directory/folder, alternatively, these settings are already set in existing project folders associated with active projects. Therefore, you can either create the folder manually or refer to an existing project folder and the respective source and target language folders and settings.

Once you know from which folder you want to create your new project from scratch, follow these steps:

1- Select the source file(s) from the source language folder of your choice.
