Hello again...
Sorry if this has already been asked. I have been looking and cannot find the answer to this.

I am trying to apply TM into a new project. But after I 'open' it in the menu, it keeps telling me that it is 'unable to access Tramslation Memory' and then obviously produces 0 matches.

Is there a way I can solve this problem? It also happens when I try to update the mentioned TM. It is my most impotant memory and it contains many entries from my current project so it would be quite arduous to start from scratch!

Thanks a million!

Did you upload your Trados version? Where did you open your TM, in the workbench: "file > open"? And what file format do you work in for the new project?
Please provide more information. Thanks

Error message text Aug 16, 2008


I tried to search Google for the error message you provided ("'unable to access Translation Memory"), but couldn't find it.

Can you please provide the exact text (and number) of that error message? It may help in finding the right solution.

If you managed to open other TMs (did you?), I suspect there may be a fault with one or more of the entries. But as Alan said, more info is required.

Problem solved Aug 17, 2008

Thank you both for your prompt reply...
Actually after two reboots I tried again and it gave me no trouble... I am not sure exactly why I was getting that problem. It simply said what I mentioned: Unable to access TM. But now it works great!

Thanks anyway! And sorry for the nuisance! Love Trados
