Hi, there!

I am trying to understand what the difference between two import options: add and merge is.

Both of them imply adding imported units to the current TM. But what will the result be? What will my target TM contain if I add units (small file import mode) and if I merge units (large file import mode).

Small import file (no reorganisation): Translator's Workbench reads the translation units from the text import file and adds them to the current translation memory.

Large import file (with reorganisation): Translator's Workbench reads and analyses all translation units from the text import file and merges them with the existing data in the translation memory.


TIA

"Merge" Sep 16, 2009

"Merge" wil only be possible if your TM allows multiple 100% matches (check under "File - Properties" to see if it does). In this case, TUs with identical source texts will be added as a second unit so you will get several 100% matches (appearing as 99% matches).

About "Add" I have no idea.

Hope that helps!
Cheers,
David
