I am using Trados, Office 2003 with XP SP2.

I created a TM for a specific project, and while translating a doc file (using Word) when I get to a certain point in the document, TW suddenly tries to open a previously created TM for a different project.

I have tried with fix document, but it didn't work.

Is there a solution or tick to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance

...your workbench crash? when this happens your previously used tm is opened upon restart instead of the current one. you have to reopen the current tm manually in workbench (file > open).

if your workbench is crashing often it is best to open the current tm, exit workbench, and restart it. this way the current tm is always opened after a crash/restart.

good luck,
