I have a TM which I will use for a project in normal mode (read and write). Also, I have an additional TM which I would like to use as a reference, but without changing it (in read-only mode).

Is there a way to use such an additional TM with Translator's Workbench? Other CAT tools (e. g. Deja Vu) allow to add additional TMs to a project and specify read-only, write-only or read/write modes when using the TMs. Is it anyhow possible with SDL Trados?

Hi Kirill,

You can do this in WB version 7.

Go to "Tools\Translation Memory Options" and click the Concordance tab. You'll see the option that lets you browse to a read-only TM.

Thank you, Giles, but I failed to find anything at the tab. I can't find any field to add an auxilliary TM, sorry. Can you please specify where to find it?

Hi Kirill,
The Concordance tab (Options - Translation Memory Options - Concordance) has a dialogue field where you can specify a Reference (read-only) translation memory.

Please check the Help function for search restrictions using this function.

HTH, Ralf

Another question: how the analysis works when I use a reference TM? Oct 21, 2006

I've added this reference TM, thank you, Giles and Ralf.

Another question is the following:

Sometimes my client wants me to analyze new jobs with my TM only, and sometimes they want me to use both TMs to analyze a new project.

Imagine that I have a main TM and a reference TM attached, what happens when I analyze new files? Is the reference TMs included into the analysis? Or only the main TM?

Sorry for my silly questions, but I usually use DVX, and everything is much simpler with it, but in this case I have to use Trados.
