Trados 2009 creates new TM for every job? I want to use just one TM!

Hi,

I am sure this is another newbie problem, but I appreciate help anyway! I created a single TM for all my work with Trados and every time I create a project I choose that TM. After having worked on a a handful of projects I realized that Trados creates a new TM for every single project and doesn't update the one I chose (the general one for all my work) but rather the project specific ones.

My questions are:

How do I avoid that in the future and ensure that only my one big PM is used and updated?

Can I combine the TMs created for the individual projects and merge them all into my general TM, so I don't lose my work thus far?

Thanks in advance!

Do not create project TMs Aug 31, 2009

When you create a project, after entering all the information, you will reach a 'Create project' window (I think it's the second to last), there's a drop-down menu with several options and the default is 'Prepare project', choose 'Create project without Project TM'. I don't have Studio running right now so I might have the wrong terms.

Thanks but... Aug 31, 2009

I've just tried that, created a new project etc doing what you told me to but it still doesn't seem to update the main TM. It does not however create a project TM, which is something at least

Also is there a way to consolidate all the different TMs? They are all in the same language pairings.

Thanks again!

It's all my fault ;-) Aug 31, 2009

Update:

I just got it to work, thanks for the help. I still haven't figured out how to consolidate the TMS though, any thoughts?
