I want to keep all my translation memories in one central folder.

However, when I create a new project, I create TM in the central folder, Trados creates another TM in the project folder and keeps working from there. But, TM in project properties appears to be the one in central folder not TM.

I am really confused. I don't want to keep transferring from one TM to another.

I have tried to find some solutions on talisma and this forums. Probably, I couldn't get to the right words.

Thank you

Do not create project TMs Sep 1, 2010

And you will not have this "problem", which in fact is none.
This is a great feature, allowing me to update my main TM with ready and proofread translation and to keep the working tm small and fast.
But if you wish just to work with the main TM, do not use the "Project TM" feature.
