My brief research could not answer a simple question: do auto-suggest dictionaries update automatically as the base TM is updated?

Alternatively, does one need to re-generate the auto-suggest dictionary from time to time from the same TM?

Thanks for the advice.....

I don't think so Oct 16, 2010

As far as I know, they do not update automatically. So, yes, you would need to re-generate the dictionary if you want it to reflect the updates...

auto-suggest dictionaries Oct 16, 2010

Hi,
I've been using the last version of trados studio 2009 (Starter Edition) for a couple of weeks. The user guide indicates that the TM updates automatically as soon as you confirm the translated segment. I think that the dictionary follows the same principle, so, as soon as you add terms to the translation and confirm them, they get both to the TM and to the autosuggest dictionary as well.
Have a nice weekend

Regards

Roberto

Terms added to Multiterm become available immediately Oct 17, 2010

..if that's what you're looking for and provided the Termbase Window still works after the SP3 'update' (two steps forward, one step back).
I've more or less given up on Auto-Suggest, but MultiTerm finally works like a charm.
