Trados 2006: WorkBench is looking for previous TM for no reason?

Hi all,

I had to re-create one of my client's TM and I renamed it from BlahBlah to BlahBlah_EN-FI.
Now I am trying to translate another client's files with another TM (HaHa_EN-FI) but WorkBench complains it cannot find the BlahBlah TM.

If I rename the BlahBlah_EN-FI back to BlahBlah, I'm able to use Open/Get without problems but I don't have the guts to start translating. If I now rename the TM back, Workbench complains again it cannot find the previous TM.

Why is WorkBench looking for the previous TM?

I had SDL Trados 2006 and 2007 installed simultaneously on my computer for a while but had many issues with them. I uninstalled 2007 and repair-installed 2006 and everything seems to be ok so maybe this issue is not related. Or is it?

Thanks in advance,
Atso Puronen

Hi again,

As soon as I posted, I found the culprit:

I had BlahBlah TM set as Concordance TM in settings!

Hi Atso, this is a default feature of TWB, but I think it can be swiched off somewhere. Just look around the menus a bit.
