Satellite project - TM/Autosearch doesn't work

Project with very tight deadline, no time to search previous posts. My apologies if this has been asked before, and also bear with me if it's an absolutely idiotic question...

I opened the satellite file, everything seems to work fine, TMs are updated (according to the time stamp), but autosearch and manual search don't work. Even for almost identical segments I get no matches. The analysis doesn't include the already translated segments.

As far as I can tell, all settings are the way they should be, autoassemble and autosearch are enabled. 100% matches seem to be automatically propagated, though.

I'd hate to waste time due to unfound matches. I also would like to monitor my progress. Any idea what I can do to fix this?

TIA!!

Check settings / TM language / Repair Feb 14, 2008

I'd check first the settings of the project on the Project/Properties tab (sounds silly but depending on how the sat project was made you may not be using the TMs you think, or the languages may not be set right for your TM - in short, all sorts of properties may be changed from your usual on a sat project).

Failed that, I'd run a repair on the TM in question and on the project to see if Autosearch gets back on line.

Good luck!

Thanks, Rossana!

Repairing the tm and then sending the project to the tm did the trick!

I've got the same problem. Aug 7, 2009

I received a Satellite from the customer, where the TM is already included in the project.
I exported the TM, repaired it and it worked fine.
Then I sent the project to the TM, but it doesn't update any segments.
Still I get no match...
