I reinstalled SDL Trados after I formatted the hdd. I started a new translation, very similar to an old one, but now Trados does not find any match on identical text segments. Moreover, it does not show any close suggestion in the target box. Can anyone help, please?

Did you back up your data? Nov 26, 2009

If not, reformatting your HDD will have erased all of your data and you will not find any matches.

try with *.txt Nov 26, 2009

I have experienced the "same" when trying to use a *.tmw file sent by e-mail. In the in-box it showed some kilobytes. After copying to my HDD - zero bytes. There is one way that always works - export *.txt from your original workbench and then import it to a new one. And also check if it contains anything (bytes).

Correct TM? Nov 26, 2009

Hi Bogdan,
are you sure you are using the correct TM which you, supposedly, backed up before formatting your HDD? Also, please check the "Minimum Match Value" settings in "Options > Translation Memory Options". It may be set too high.

Yes, it is the correct TM.

The Export option is not available / is inhibited. What can I do?

Check your settings Nov 27, 2009

The penalty settings etc. would have changed back to default settings when reinstalling, and changing these settings might help you out.

Seems to work... Nov 28, 2009

Great, thanks. I recreated the TM and now it seems to work, although I have the feeling that it still does not find some existing matches.

Before I formatted the hdd, I would always get a project file on my desktop after working with Trados. Now I don't. Is it possible to have had something in that project file, which I now don't?
