Using Workbench and Word 2007. I don't understand why, after I have entered a translation into segments in usual way, I reopen the saved file the old rather than new translation is prompted. Why doesn't the most recent translation appear as 100% match? Why is translation memory not being updated automatically.

Thanks Luisa

Used translation units = Leave unchanged
Changed translation was Merge then changed to Overwrite
This improved matters i.e. more green and less yellow but logically shouldn't a translated text always prompt only green throughout when put through Workbench again?
