Hello,

I have just exported all my old Wordfast TMs as .tmx files and then imported them into Trados 2009. The process in itself seems to work perfectly, but when I had finished I did a TM search for a company name that cropped up regularly in my old TMs as I wanted to check that the new material had been added correctly.

Hello,

I have just exported all my old Wordfast TMs as .tmx files and then imported them into Trados 2009. The process in itself seems to work perfectly, but when I had finished I did a TM search for a company name that cropped up regularly in my old TMs as I wanted to check that the new material had been added correctly. However, there was only one hit in the results window when there should have been many more.

I have tried re-importing the .tmx file in question and it seems to work fine, i.e. I do not get any error messages, but I still do not get any additional hits in the TM search results.

Has anyone come across this before?

Thanks in advance,

Jon

Have you compared the number of TUs your old/new TMs have?
In Studio go to TM window, open the TM, go to files>settings>TU units.

And how are you searching for the term? By opening the TM in the TM window or by opening a file to translate and performing concordance?

Imported into one main TM Nov 29, 2011

Hi Emma,

Thanks for yout reply.

I imported them all into one main TM as I want to create a TM large enough to start using the Autosuggest function. I think this means that I can't check how many of the units from the old TM have been added, as you suggest. I also can't seemt o find the files>settings>TU units path that you mentioned.

In terms of the search I was using the full TM search in the TM maintenance window.
