hi! in my package purchased it lists like tageditor winalign multiterm etc. But it also lists perfectmatch as a separate item although i couldn't find the installation file. Is it the name of a feature or separate programme?
Thanks a lot in advance.

Unfortunately, this is a confusing issue. The program module you are looking for is actually called the Context TM Wizard and is located in the following directory: C:\Program Files\SDL International\T2007\TT\Context TM Wizard.exe. It is NOT included in the freelance version. With this program you can create so-called PerfectMatches. The program was taken out of 2009 Studio, although Studio still recognizes PerfectMatches created with this wizard.

Perfect match is not a separate application. It is a feature in Workbench / Tag Editor / the editor in Studio.

It is when Trados recognises a segment you are translating as one that is identical to a segment you have previously translated and is therefore in your Translation Memory.

If you are only just starting out using Trados you must build up your TM to start getting matches. They will come up when you translate very similar files again and again (instructions handbooks, etc.) If you translate literary work you might never see a perfect match in your life!

I suggest you sign up for some SDL webinars to get a general idea of what Trados does, and then you might be interested in more specific training sessions to learn more details.
Good luck!
