Dear all,

When I set up a new project using a project template with two TMs (one of them having approx. 300.000 entries) and three termbases in order to translate a one page word doc file, the preparation batch task takes up to five minutes before it finishes fine. The first two tasks ("convert to SDLXIFF" and "create copies" - I'm not sure about the correct terms in English here) finish almost instantly, while the last three seem to finish almost at the same time after five minutes.

Is this behaviour normal?

I'm using Studio SP2 on a quite well maintained WinXP machine with 2,33GHz and 4GB ram.

Thanks for any advice.

Best regards,
