Navigation in Translation Memory

Hello everybody!

I would like to know if there is an option somewhere in SDL Trados Studio 2009 to switch automatically to the last entry of a translation memory.

I am in the view "translation memories" and open a translation memory. However, this always begins with the first segment. There are three options for navigation in the TM:
- go to the next page of entries ( > )
- go to the previous page of entries ( < )
- go to the first page of entries ( I< )

Unfortunately, there is no option to go to the last page of entries. Does anybody know if such an option exists? That would be really helpful, especially if you want to check that the import of your alignment has worked...

Thanks very much in advance for your help!!

If you have time, Nadine, you could post this on the SDL ideas website.

I agree that this would be useful and I haven't found how to do it either.

As a workaround, I sometimes create a filter "Create on >= (date)" and by entering today's date, you only get the segments created today. That way you can quickly browse through the segments to the last one.
You can also specify the time if you've done a lot of work that day!

Hello everybody,
this is just to inform you that is currently undergoing maintenance.

I think a similar idea has already been posted there though. To add to your ideas, anytime I edit and confirm a TU, the TM jumps to segment No. 1 which is a problem if maintaining a TM with several thousands of TUs.
