Using Trados 2007 and Synergy, I translated a TTX, updating some previous TM content. I then save the file and go back to Synergy. Synergy checks the translation progress. Then I tell it to finalize the project and update the TM. I then click on the resulting Word file to open it. Low and behold, all of the new content is there, but the content I updated is back to the pre-translated versions!

So, I reopen the TTX and check those segments. They are the new versions. I open them and Trados gives me green matches, so the TM is up to date. I do a Save Target As from Tageditor. The resulting document has all of the new content!

What am I doing wrong that the Synergy Finalize option is doing this?
