When creating the WIP TM I received the following error:
"This translation memory 'XXX' will not be used for the following language pairs:

English (United States) > German (Germany)

To edit the translation memories used for these language pairs, got to the individual language level."

I'm not sure what the last sentence means but have checked the Language Settings window in Project Settings. Source Language is English (United States) and Target Languages > Selected is German (Germany).

I'm working on a project that came with 3 TMs and have created a WIP (work in progress) TM to share with the other translator. However, this TM is empty, even though Update is checked.

Also, after opening the project received from the client, a similar message was displayed re the 3 project TMs. This was solved by removing them from the project settings TM list and re-selecting them but removing and re-selecting does not work for the WIP TM.

I've run both the Update main translation memories and Update project translation memories batch tasks to no avail even selecting Update for the Project TMs but have no access to the work I've done.

Set up your default TM Sep 27, 2011

If you go to the Tools menu, then Options-Language Pairs you can set your default TM there, rather than at the individual project level.

I'm trying that now.

I've used the Import feature to import the content of the folders/files I've translated so far. Now I can see the TM entries in the TM view but in file view my translated segments are still not recognised.
