I shared a big project on 50,000 words with a colleague who uses SDL Trados Studio 2014 where I used SDL Trados Studio 2015, and wanted to share the SDL Trados Studio TM in real-time with him. I didn't have time to get it set up this time, but have installed the plugin now in my Studio so I can use this feature next time.

But I'm not clear over how to upload the TM to Language Terminal if the format is a SDL Trados Studio TM. Does anyone know? What is the process? Should I create an empty TM in Language Terminal first, then export the TM from SDL Trados Studio in TMX format, and then import this TMX file into the empty TM I created already in Language Terminal?

Also, is there any restriction on how many other users can update and use this shared Language Terminal TM if we don't use MemoQ but SDL Trados Studio? It doesn't say anywhere about this, only if you use MemoQ that the restriction is (except the owner of the Language Terminal account) sharing with 1 other user with update rights, and 2 other users with read-only rights.

1. RE: Should I create an empty TM in Language Terminal first, then export the TM from SDL Trados Studio in TMX format, and then import this TMX file into the empty TM I created already in Language Terminal?
Exactly.

2. RE: how many other users can update and use this shared Language Terminal TM
...you can invite up to three co-workers to your TMs...

TMX then, and 3 co-translators Jul 19, 2017

Thanks Stepan, that clarified everything. So then I just upload a TMX file to Language Terminal.
