Hello everybody, I am translating a word document with Trados, and when I use the concordance feature, the workbench only retrieves my segments, otherwise it displays a message saying that the system cannot find the specified path. I am afraid that I am having no access to the segments originally loaded in the TM.

Any ideas how to solve this?

Thank you very much,

Susana

In Workbench, go to Options, Translation Memory Options, and select the Concordance tab. See if you have a Reference (read-only) translation memory specified there. If yes, maybe that is the cause of the problem, if that file does not exist or had been moved.
See also whether the "Search first in reference translation memory" option is checked.

Hi Katalin, thank you so much. That was precisely what happened. I am using a TM provided by the customer, and unfortunately the workbench kept a reference translation memory from a previous job, which as you very well explain, has been moved.

Problem solved!
