it happens a lot. I 'm working with a project. Several translaters are translating for the same customer. We exchange our tmx TM's. I import, I see (F3) that the segment already translated by an other translater is in my TM, but it doesn't fill automatically my segment.

Could you help me?

Many thanks and have a good evening

Maybe you are looking at the wrong TM? May 19, 2010

Hi Anne,

You mentioned you imported into your Main TM but you are working with a Project. Unless you import the TMX into your Project TM you won't see any matches. Perhaps this is the reason?

If you right click on your Project in Studio you can select Open Project Folder and in there you will find the Project TM.

Maybe this will help?

Project tm was the key... but May 19, 2010

A lot of thanks Paul. This was the problem...

But now, my project tm will have a lot of segments that do not belong to my project. In other words, the project tm won´t reflect my work. Well, if at the end of the project, I want to have an exclusive tm for my project, what shall I do? Batch tasks, "fill project tm" or "update project tm" (sorry, I'm translating from french) for example to manage an exclusive one without the other translations of my colleagues?

Have a good evening and many thanks again
