Hi,

I'm using TRADOS Translator Studio 2009 for the first time. I created a new project with a new TM, and it seems the TM just doesn't update, never. I translated a few strings, but the TM of the project still contains no translation units.
I'm at my wits end here and would really appreciate any prompt reply. I found nothing about this at the Knowledge Base.

Thanks,
Dor

Check the project settings Feb 13, 2010

Make sure, the translation memory is set to active and also that the checkbox for update is marked.

check update box Feb 13, 2010

make sure that the update box is checked in your TM.
Project>project settings>(your) language pairs>translation memory...
The last column "update" in the window on the right must be checked (and, of course, the TM must be enabled). This is the default setting, but maybe you have unchecked it by mistake?

Both checked Feb 13, 2010

Thanks for your quick replies.
Both Enabled and Update are checked, yet there no results in any concordance research and TM is said to contain no translation units.

confirm and move to next segment Feb 13, 2010

Are you confirming your segment before you move to the next segment? (confirm and move to next segment)?
My shortcut is ctrl+enter, but I think I may have changed it from default.
If you are, there should be a little green tick beside the green pencil in the column in between the source and target segments.
If this doesn't solve it, I'm afraid I've run out of ideas!

This one did the trick, thank you so much!

I thought attending the webinar would be enough...
