I've got Trados for both my main computer and my laptop. What is the best way to synchronize their TMs?

Thank you,

Hi Yael Jul 28, 2011

Simply copy the newest version (overwriting the older one).

It is a good idea to have a backup version somewhere else, just in case - at a portable disk or USB drive.

While opening projects where the existing (not updated) TM is used, remove it and re-attach once again. The same can be done with TDB files.

I use a network attached disk for all TMs and dictionaries, as well as translation projects. I never need to sync. A gigabit network is recommended.
