I am working on a pretranslated document in Trados. Some of the segments are repeats, but even on 100% matches, the TM window is giving me the message "Different target in TM. Use 'Get' to update document or 'set' to update TM" rather than inserting my past translation. I see my past translation in the lower window, but can't find any way of automatically inserting it in the TM, none of the red or blue "get" buttons work. What is going on here? How do I get my past translation, as displayed in the lower TM window, into the yellow box?
Does anyone know what to do? Thanks!

Use 'Get Translation' Jan 2, 2006

Hi Rebecca,
You need to use Get Translation (the single downward-pointing arrow).

As this requires manual (inter)action even with your own 100% matches (and hence, Translation to Fuzzy doesn't work), I would prefer working on a document that is not pre-translated, using a reference TM instead.

HTH, Ralf

Hallelujah, it works! Thank you! I was clicking on the sideways arrows with red and blue lines on them before. I think I'll go celebrate by making some hot chocolate....

This doesn't work for me! No matter how much time I click "get" button, the next time the same thing happen again! It seems I can never update TM in this way. And I just can't find"set" button as in the title of this topic. Anybody can help?
