Hello,
I would like to ask for some advice on how to find the option "overwrite TM" when importing a corrected or changed TM.

In Trados 2007 there is the option "overwrite" or "merge TM" to choose from before importing new TM data but I just cannot seem to find that option in Trados Studio.

I am in the middle of a large translation project where I have to correct a translation memory on a daily basis. After changing expressions, segments, unwanted translations, I export the TM as tmx-file and send it out to the translators involved. But when they import the corrected TU's into their own TM, Studio does not replace the existing units, it rather adds the new ones. The translator end up with both the "old" TU's and the "new" ones.

Does anyone know how to actually overwrite TU's in Studio so that typo's, unwanted phrasing etc. are not propagated?

Thanks a lot in advance
Best wishes
Sacha

This option is there - in SP2 Aug 11, 2010

AFAIK this option is "back" in Service Pack 2.

However it may also be, that I am mixing things here, as I am testing beta software for SDL and do have this option already in one of the future versions.

Sorry, not yet in SP2 Aug 11, 2010

I have checked on another computer - this option has been introduced obviously later. It will most certainly come with the next update for Studio.
For the time beeing I do not know how to overwrite segments in Studio TM, honestly.

"Overwrite existing translation units" is coming Aug 11, 2010

The option is currently missing in the current version (SP2). The good news is that it will be in the next version (SP3).
