I am fairly new to CAT tools and just downloaded the new Wordfast 6.0. I have been able to translate with it but not to use any TM. I put it in, but when I type "Current Segment Leverage" or try to type something under "TM Lookup", nothing happens. I would appreciate any help on this, stated as simply as possible.

It's not an MT; it's just a TM! Jan 18, 2009

It cannot leverage anything if you don't have any similar segments translated in your translation memory. It's not a machine translation tool; it stores only things you have previously translated.
