I have created a test project with an empty TM.

Is there a way i can attach a TM after a project is created.

I have not find a clue that such thing is possible.

As i understand, i have to delete the project, create a new one and then attach the TM i want.

I have trados 2007.

Project - project settings Nov 8, 2011

and change everything you wish.
Add files, remove files, add or remove TMs, termbases, ASDs.
What you indeed cannot do is to change the segmentation of a file within a project, which already has been converted to SDLXLIFF.

Not what i expected Nov 9, 2011

I have been before to project settings.

The options offered there are very few and certainly not the options you mention.

I do not why. No option offered to add files or a TM.

What i see is the following:

Name field, Description Field, Due Date, Customer.

Can you explain the above?

You mentioned you run Trados 2007 Nov 10, 2011

Hi Dimitris,

I'm wondering if you are using the Synergy console with SDL Trados 2007 because your description of the project Settings looks like this, whereas Jerzy was referring to SDL Trados Studio which is different.

If this is the case then I'm afraid it isn't possible to add more files, TMs or TBs to an existing Project. You would have to recreate it and make sure you add all the resources you need from the beginning.

Studio will allow this. Synergy will not.
