For the translation job at hand I have created a new (and, naturally, empty) TM and I am using my "old" translation memory (with all my translations in the field) as a Concordance TM. So, Trados searches first in the new TM, does not find a match, goes to the Concordance TM, finds a 100%, but does not insert it... Why?

Trados inserts matches from the main TM only, never from a Concordance TM.
What you can do is:

1. Copy and paste the segments from the Concordance window .

2. Do the translation with your old TM and then clean the file in the new, empty TM, if you have to deliver the TM together with the translated file, or

3. Import your old TM into the new one.

Hope this helps

Marina

...Marina's post and adding my favourite read the manual.
Sorry Pavel, but most of your questions are rather basic and the answers can be found quickly and easily in SDL Trados documentation.
