Hi,

is it normal that it takes more than 1 hour to import a tm with about 55000 entries? import and export under trados 2007 only took 5 min.

They are not the same structure May 19, 2010

Hi Pascal,

If you are importing, or upgrading TMs, then Studio is not simply importing text. There are various cleanup heuristics taking place under the hood to get imported data "closer" to what the new Studio filters are likely to produce. That is, to align/synchronize the incoming TM contents with the filters, primarily in order to increase the exact match rate.

All this can take some time and is affected by the flavour of TM being imported and the content of the data within.

Regards

Paul

ok but now it's nearly 5 hours May 19, 2010

and still not finished and my pc is not that old and has enough ram...

you'll certainly understand that if I get a tm from a customer for a translation I need to start that one immediately and not 5 or more hours later...

That is unusual but... May 20, 2010

... I would be interested to see the results of the 55000 entries. How many actually failed to be imported and why?

I'd also be happy to take a look at the TM if you like?

Regards

Paul

cannot give you the tm May 20, 2010

as it is a tm from a larger company which asked not to forward it to anyone. But it managed to import all entries without any segments failing.

My experience May 20, 2010

Hi Pascal,

I had a similar problem when I first started using Studio 2009, and it turned out that I was mistakenly trying to import the backup copy of my main TM, which was on a USB drive. It was the USB interface that was slowing things down, and when I imported the copy on my hard drive things moved much faster.

Perhaps this will help you?
Angela

usb? May 20, 2010

ok. that could be the problem. am using a usb stick because I need to take my translating data from work to home and vice versa all the time. Though up to now it did not interfere with anything.

but I'll keep that in mind for the next try with such a large db.

Some USB sticks, especially the older ones may be tremendously slow.
My students sometimes try to work on 'em directly instead of copyng their data to the HDD and the hell freezes.
A classic HDD may be faster up to 20-30 times than an old flash drive.

Cheers
