When I was finally happy working with it, it stops working. I know for a fact there is nothing wrong with my end nor with the software itself. However, if you do not have their support they charge you gold for a year, you are left in the lurch. I cannot add Google Translation as memory anylonger and now I wonder what is it good for if I am the one to write everything on the write side of window after I have opened Trados Studio 2009. SDL themselves did something from their end to stop google memory working and if you need help, they tell you to pay for their expensive support.

Don't blame SDL, blame Google Nov 2, 2011

There have been several topics regarding GT not working anymore. If you search the forums, you will certainly find them.

Don't you have your own TM? I mean, CAT tools are not MT, there's a component that we must not forget, it's called human translation. And human translation, unless you're using speech recognition or have your translations typed by someone else, involve typing in the translation in the CAT software interface... Or perhaps I'm not understanding what you mean? icon_confused.gif

No, I do not have a TM Nov 2, 2011

when you receive a totally new translation without a TM from yr outsourcer, you have nothing to work on, do you?

Indeed Nov 2, 2011

But that's part of the job. And I also have my own TM that I use for reference.

Here's the topic explaining the situation regarding the GT API: Google Translator not working in Studio

Another thing is that although I started the translation manually, I could not save the doc using saving target. Only probs!
