Hello
I am working on a translation project with a different CAT tool but I need to use Trados (I am using version 8.0) to check a translation memory, so using the concordance window. I have been working on it for a few months already and suddenly the concordance window simply doesn't open anymore...
so, I open the Translator's Workbench and the TM (.tmw), then click on Tools>Concordance...
and NOTHING happens, no error message, no window, I tried also with F3 key but it is the same.
Can anyone help me?
Thanks and happy new year to all!
Sofia

Checkpoints Jan 4, 2009

1) Have you tried to reinstall?
2) Is you RAM-memory sufficient (2 Gb)?
3) Have you enough free space on your hard disk för the cache memory (should be around 25% of disk storage capacity)?
4) Have you tried to run the SDL maintenance tool on the TM?

Maybe your TM is busted.

How do you run the maintenance tool? Jan 4, 2009

I have tried with other TMs and it doesn't work. I shouldn't have any RAM (2 GB) or free space issues (30.5 GB free / total 102 GB). I haven't reinstalled Trados and I haven't used the maintenance tool (could you tell me how to do that?).
Thanks
Sofia

Hi Sofia,
Have a look at these two previous discussions:

Maybe this helps.

Best regards,

If Concordance window outside screen Jan 4, 2009

Close Translator's Workbench.


From the Start menu, choose Run.... The Run dialog box is displayed.


Type regedit into the Open box and click OK. The Registry Editor is displayed.


In the left-hand pane, navigate through the folders to the following folder:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Trados\TW4Win\Last Session


In the right-hand pane, locate the following four values:

ConcordanceHeight, ConcordanceWidth, ConcordanceX, ConcordanceY.

Each value needs to be changed as follows:

- Rght-click on the value name and select Modify.

- In the Edit DWORD Value box that is displayed, select Decimal in the Base box.

- Enter the following new number in the Value data field:

- For ConcordanceHeight, enter 118.
- For ConcordanceWidth, enter 138.
- For ConcordanceX, enter 3.
- For ConcordanceY, enter 37.

- Click OK.


Close Registry Editor, start Translator's Workbench and run the Concordance command. The Concordance Results window should show normally.


NOTE: As you have tested with other TMs the maintenance tool should not be the solution, though it is good to sometimes reorganize the data in it (TM Work Bench: File - Reorginize)

The Concordance window does not show up as a separate window in the Windows task bar - it is "part of " Workbench.


It can be that the Concordance window is just hidden behind another window, like Tag Editor or Word.

All you have to do is click on the Workbench window and the Concordance window jumps on top - best to be moved over Workbench.

Excellent. I never guess we will need to edit the Windows registry.

In addition, check your project filter settings of Workbench as well. I met an instance that my filter worked and no concordance was it at all!

Multiple monitors? Sep 20, 2014

The usual reason for this problem is that the concordance window is "on another screen" which isn't there.
If you are working with two screens, go to the windows menu "screen resolution" and switch them left to right (or right to left).
The window should probably appear.

If you have only one screen, try pluging a second one in
