Dear colleagues,

I used to have a big TM when working in Wordfast, in which I merged every TM I used for one specific agency working with several end clients.

Now I'm working with SDL Trados freelance suite 2007, and I'd like to know if such feature exists.

I already figured out that it is possible to create an empty TM and then export-import all my TMs in it, but I have a great number of them, and I don't have the time right now to export them all. Is there a way to skip the export phase and work directly with the Workbench format?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Céline

Nope AFAIK Oct 23, 2009

Hello Celine,

I am afraid there is no workaround in Suite 2007 (in Studio 2009 you can add as many TMs as you like), as the only option is to choose a reference TM, one only.

Thanks Giuliana Oct 26, 2009

OK, I'll have to take the time to export - import all my TMs then.

Thank you for your input.

my way Oct 26, 2009

I keep all TMs in TMX format. (And update them after every job.)
They are easily merged via import.

Good idea Oct 26, 2009

Hi Sergei,

This is definitely a good option, plus it saves time. It means adding a new step at the end of each job and I'm not sure I'll comply to it, but it is worth a try.

Thank you!
