Dear colleagues,

Is it normal for Trados 2007 (clean TM) not to indicate any resemblance between sentences in text when analysing it? Put in other words: does Trados 2007 only indicate repititions of complete sentences? I have a text with very similar, long sentences where only one or two words differ, but Trados reports no partial match. If I copy a complete sentence however, than it does report repetition. It's the first time I have noticed this and I think it's really odd. I do have some problems with Trados lately: when I try to open a sentence in Word with Trados 2007 WB using the Trados icons in Word - WB opened first - a pop-up appears saying that Trados isn't running. I solve this by closing Word and Trados, starting Trados anew, opening a new, empty Word file and typing some characters in there. Mostly Trados opens this 'sentence' I typed in and subsequently Trados also opens the sentences in the documents I have to translate.

Thank you very much.

The analysis reports repetitions and matches. But with an empty TM there are no matches, of course.
