Trados Studio 2009

We have a TM with approx. 8.000 entries and want to import some TMs that are created via the alignment tool.

Its foreseeable that we will get lots of duplicates.

1.
How is the general method to avoid duplicates when importing a TM?
In our case Trados didn't recognize any duplicate.

2.
Is there a possibility to define the duplicate recognition, i.e. by specifying that we want to recognize segments that have not exactly but nearly the same content or segments that have the same content but different formatting?
The goal would be to enlarge the definition of duplicates.


Thanks for any help!

Search for duplicates only in server TM possible Sep 24, 2010

But when importing you could chose the option "overwrite" for existing segments - that should remove duplicates, provided the source is always completly identical, which includeds formatting.

The answer to your second question is no, there is no possibility to do that - I do not know any setting for that.

Overwrite existing segments not found in Trados 2009 Sep 24, 2010

Thank you!
This is exactly what we have been looking for but did not find in Trados Studio 2009.

Is there a hidden setting for that?

No, it has only been introduced in SP3, which means you'll be able to use it in a few days.
