Hello. I have a new laptop, thus I imported all my memoQ TM and termbases from my older laptop to the new one. I simply copied and pasted the folders. According to instructions, I should go to Resources, Translation Memories (or Term bases) and click on Register local to have my resources available again.

Nevertheless, Register local command is greyed out. I have almost 20 unusable translation memories and term bases from my older laptop. Is there a registry or something I could change in order to rescue my old translation memories?

I've seen that this problem has been already posted here, but no solution has been provided yet (or I cannot find it).

I would appreciate your help.

Kind regards

Clarisa Moraña

small advice Apr 29

Maybe MemoQ is unaware of copied TMs (I suppose you copied all Translation Memories folder). I suggest to create a dummy project with dummy (empty) TM on the new laptop, to make MemoQ aware of some TM.
There is another simple (but time consuming) solution. You should create some empty TMs (with similar names) and then import TMX files (from the old laptop) into these empty TMs.
Good luck!

Check "memoQ server" block Apr 30

Look at the ribbon. What option is selected in memoQ server block? My computer or external server?

Thank you for solving this for me. I looked everywhere but I couldn't figure it out.
