Hi!

I would like to ask if there's a documented procedure to backup settings, translation memories and multiterm termbases on one computer and then restore them on another computer. (SDL Trados Studio 2009).

Is it enough to save the content of My Documents\SDL\SDL MultiTerm\Termbases for termbases, and My Documents\SDL Trados Studio\Translation Memories ? Or there's a more appropriate approach?

I'm going to move my trados installation to a new computer. For this reason I would like to make sure that I do the backup / restore in the correct way.

Thank you!

export/import Jun 14, 2010

the most common way to migrate TM is EXPORT/IMPORT.
I'm not sure if it is the same to Termbase.

user profile and licence Jun 14, 2010

I'm not familiar with any documented procedure, but here's my advice.
1. Save your TMs, Databases, Autosuggest dict and User Profile.
2. Return you Studio licence from your present machine.
3. Download the application on your new machine. Enter the licence. Load your user profile and then the other user files that you have saved.

Some advice on backing up when working with Studio Jun 14, 2010

Hi Zaur,

There are two places where important files are placed that you might want to back up regularly;

c:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\SDL\

or

c:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\SDL\

In here we hold Studio specific things related to changes you make in Tools-Options and Setup for example and a reinstall will lose these settings if they are not backed up.

The other place is here;

c:\Users\<username>\Documents\SDL Trados Studio\

or

... My Documents\SDL Trados Studio\

This you won’t lose with a reinstall, but it’s good to back this up anyway as it contains by default (you can decide to put these elsewhere) TM’s, AutoSuggest Dictionaries, Filetypes and customised filetypes, Language resource templates, and Projects you are working on.

Regards

Paul

Hi, I just would like to know if backing up these files for the latest version (incl. Professional) is still sufficient, and if the locations are unchanged.
Thanks.
