Dear all,

Normally I work on a desktop computer using Trados Studio. I created a project with several files (chapters in a manual) - these are MIF FrameMaker files.

Now I have installed Studio on my notebook and want to work on the same files there. I have copied the whole project and translated one chapter.

Today I am back in the office wanting to translate on, using my desktop computer. Which files do I have to copy (using an USB-flash drive)? I tried to copy again the whole project folder as well as the TM, but Studio on my desktop doesn't show the changes I have made on my notebook (the chapter still is not translated and the TM doesn't insert the segments as 100 % matches).

Is there a chance to copy only the chapter I have worked on using my notebook? Or will I have to create a new project everytime?

Is a transfer of data possible? Or will I have to create a network? (No time for this... )

Thanks a million for your help


PS.Working with my notebook I didn't have the autosuggest function (although I created an autosuggest dictionary in Studio on my notebook). What am I to do to be able to switch computers and use the same functions?
