I am using SDL Trados Studio SP2 and the Translation Memory I am using has more than the required 25,000 Translation Units. But I cannot generate an AutoSuggest dictionary. "Generate AutoSuggest dictionary" under Tools is greyed out and the Generate button under Project Settings/Language Pairs/AutoSuggest is greyed out as well.

For another language pair I was able to generate it without any problem and I don't understand why it doesn't work this time.

Could someone please help me?

Thanks in advance
Liselotte

Me too Apr 16, 2010

I just checked, and I have the exact same problem.

I think it has to do with upgrading to SP2, because I created an AutoSuggest dictionary before installing SP2, and now suddenly I cannot create one.

What I don't remember is, where should I enter the activation code for AutoSuggest to start working again?

And then I found the answer Apr 16, 2010

Sometimes it helps asking someone else ;o)

I needed to reactivate the license for AutoSuggest, restart Studio and voilá!

Open License Manager, Activate Online and enter the activation code for AutoSuggest.

Hope it works for you too.

Freelance version without AutoSuggest Create Apr 16, 2010

Hi both,

This is just a guess because I can't identify you to check, but if you have SDL Trados Studio 2009 Freelance on its own, or have not activated the AutoSuggest Creator license if you purchased this option, then this would be why it is greyed out.

All Freelance purchases, whether they have this option or not operate as a Professional Version for 30-days when you first install, so it might be that you have reached the end of the 30-days and the additional features that were available for Professional are no longer operational. The ability to create an AutoSuggest Dictionary requires Professional or the AutoSuggest Creator license which you can purchase seperately.

Perhaps this would explain it?

Regards

Paul

That is the answer Apr 16, 2010

Thank you, Paul for answering my question. Now I can stop browsing the web and the help files for an explanation.

Kind regards

And how much would it cost to purchase the AutoSuggest Creator license separately?
