I am using Transit Satellite PE. Last night everything was working perfectly. Now, without explanation, the terms from TermStar that are normally marked red in the target window are no longer marked red, nor do they appear in the dictionary window at the bottom of the screen. Furthermore matches no longer appear even though I know I have translated the same text over and over again. Whereas 100% matches were automatic, Transit doesn't even bother any matches found?!

What might have happened and how can I rectify this problem? Thanks.

This has happened to me, too.
If you have not added anything to the dictionary, the easiest out I found is this:
1.) Make a back-up copy of the folder of the project (most importantly: the target language file).
2.) Receive the project (pxf) again. Accept the proposed configuration, even if it means overwriting the files.
3.) Copy back the target-language file from the back-up folder. You will overwrite the one that has just been created by Transit.
The new configuration of the project ensures (in all likelihood) that Tremnstar and Fuzy work as they should. And by copying back your file you can continue from where you were.

The other possibility is to start with step 2) above, and to save the project into a new folder - not the one proposed by Transit. You will have to copy the old target-language file to this new folder then.
