Hi everyone. I've done this before but have forgotten how.

How do I combine two TMs into one?

Thanks.

1. Open both in MS Word. Copy the one and paste it below the other. Save as text.

OR:

2. Open one in WF as the TM. Close WF control panel. Click the TM Editor button (second from left on WF toolbar). Go Tools -> Special filters -> Merge current TM with another one. Click OK and select the second TM.

Thank you, Samuel.

Now I know why I couldn't remember. I now have a new version of WF and the procedure is different.

BTW, the TM editor button is the second from the RIGHT on my computer.

I meant, it is the second button, directly to the left of the WF button.

Trados Nov 30, 2007

But if you're using Trados, you can export the two TMs (also a way to backup your files) to a text file, separately. Then create a blank new TM for importing the previously exported TMs, and Import them. Refer to the Trados help file (F1) for detailed procedure.

You need to have necessary access rights to perform the export and import actions.

Best regards,
Haiyang
