Hey everyone,

i am working on a big project at the moment, and having troubles ith one of the files in Studio 2011. It is almost 10.000 lines, and I now have translated it, BUT.. i can not finish by accepting all segments because

1. it takes ages
2. I now get a memory full error

Now my questions:

1. can I finish the project and export the text without accepting all segments (or will those be missing in the final text?) Sorry if this is a newbie question, i just never had such a big file to deal with until now..

and 2. Will the TM be fully updated without accepting all segments?

I´d appreciate any suggestions and answers, thanks a lot in advance!

1. Yes - 2. Try this: Feb 15, 2012

1. I didn't know the answers to your questions but I am working on a project right now in Studio 2011 and I just clicked my shortcut for "save target as" without manually confirming the segment I'm working on and sure enough it appears in the saved Word file.

2. Have you tried: file - save all - project - batch tasks - finalize? or instead of finalize, perhaps update main translation memories?

Then to see if it worked, copy one of the source segments you did not manually confirm in a Word document, and open it up in Studio to see if it throws up a match.

Thank you Feb 16, 2012

Thank you rich,

I have now managed to get a bit of memory back and could export the target file, seems everything is there, but will check again when i have it finished totally by reloading it as source and check the linecount, that should be a safe way to say that it´s all there.
