Hello,
In trados studio 2009, under "Tools", the first option is "Generate AutoSuggest Dictionary", but this option is in grey color, which means it is unavailable for me to use. Why is it?

I have actually purchased "auto suggest add-on" and input the activation code for "auto suggest add-on" in the "license manager"....

Thank you!
Michelle

does your TM meet the requirement? Oct 10, 2011

Hi Michelle,

In order to generate Auto-Suggest Dictionaries, your TM must contain a minimum of 25 000 TUs. Is that your case?

Please check with the License Manager Oct 10, 2011

as it seems that this feature is not activated.
Try to enter the code again.

TM too small! Combining TM? Is it possible? Oct 10, 2011

Hi Nicolas and Jerzy,

Thanks very much for replying.



I have re-entered activation code, as suggested by Jerzy, and the "AutoSuggest" is enabled!!

But when I tried to add TM, I've got the message, as mentioned by Nicolas, "The TM is too small to generate an AutoSuggest.....".

Is there a way for me to combine several TM to form one big enough TM? How can I do that?

Thanks in advance.

Export and re-import Oct 10, 2011

The easiest way to do it is to export all the smaller TMs in TMX format, then create a new TM (I use TMs specifically for generating AutoSuggest dictionaries), and import the exported TMX files into it. Once your TM passes 25,000 translation units, you will be able to generate your AutoSuggest dictionary.

Another "easiest" way... Oct 10, 2011

... if you have these smaller TMs as SDLTMs already is to use the upgrade TM feature. Just add all the TMs into the upgrade window and merge them into one. Otherwise you'll have to export first.

Regards

Autosuggest working before but not now Oct 29, 2011

Hi! I bought Studio 2009 in June this year. I remember having used the Autosuggest Generate feature, say in July or, maybe August. It was working back then.

However, I tried to use it again today and the option is greyed out.

I didn't know there was a separate license for the Autosuggest Creator, as it worked before and I don't recall having entered any additional key to use it.

Is it possible that worked for some time and then, all of a sudden, stopped?

Thanks for your help!

Ivana

Yes... it is possible. Oct 29, 2011

Hi Ivana,

When you install Studio for the first time it will run in Professional mode for 30-days. This means that the AutoSuggest Creator will work without a separate license for this period because professional includes this capability.

So, you will now need to add a license for AutoSuggest Creation.

Regards

Paul
