Hi all,

SDL Trados 2007 Professional, (Trados version 8.2.0.835)

I hope someone will be able to help me with the following problem.

I'm currently working on two projects at the same time. A big one that keeps me busy most of the day and a smaller one that comes in bits and pieces throughout the day. I have to use different TMs for the two projects.

Now, I'd like to open the files for the big project in one instance of TagEditor (or Word) an connect this to the corresponding TM. Whenever one of the bits and pieces for the smaller projects arrives, I'd like to open that one in a new instance of TagEditor with a different TM associated so that I don't have to switch TMs (and reference TMs and so on) in Translator's Workbench all the time.

I can open several instances of TagEditor and several instances of Translator's Workbench with different TMs. However, I cannot connect the individual instances of TagEditor to different TMs. They always connect to the first TM that was opened.

Is there any way to change this and to associate one of several open TMs to an instance of Word or TagEditor?

Any help on this will be highly appreciated.

Thanks and regards,
Claudia
