cleaning up Wordfast TM
Thread poster: Comunican
I have been trying to find some advice on how to clean up/sort out my Wordfast TM... There are a lot of duplicated and irrelevant entries. Is there a recommended/easy way of doing this? And how often does it need doing?
Hoping to hear from you.

You can also sort. Click on the icon (sedond from right). Read the manual. There will always be some rubbish in a tm. It does not matter, nobody sees it.

if you want to have a lean and mean TM.
As for deleting duplicate entries etc., well, read the manual.

If your TM is too big for WF's internal TM editor, try cleaning it up with a good CSV editor, like http://csved.sjfrancke.nl/ . Just a note of warning, though -- WF expects a certain number of columns in the TM (even if they're mostly empty), otherwise WF doesn't recognise the TM. So make sure you have the right number of columns.

Thanks, everyone - I hadn't realised there was something in the manual about it, I will study it and investigate the filters etc...
