Dear colleagues,

When I had SDL Trados 2007 Suite, I was able to create/update indexes in the Translation Memory.
Example: I was able to use the same TM for translating from Portuguese to English and also from English to Portuguese.

I just had to open the TM in SDL Maintain in SDLX 2007, go to "Tools >> Utilities >> Create Indexes", and then create an index for the target language (the index for the source language already exists by default).
Also, after creating the index in SDL Maintain, I was able to shift source and target languages on "View >> Select Languages"

When opening a document with SDLX wizard, I could use the same TM (PT-BR >> EN-US) for translating a file from EN-US to PT-BR.

When I upgraded by TM's to Studio 2009 (I have SP2), I couldn't find a way to work with the same TM for translating from and to the source language.

Can anyone help me? I really need a two-way TM!
