Hi everyone,

This isn't a support question really, I'd just like to know your opinions.

I started using Trados Studio Freelance 2011 last December, and am getting on quite happily after a few teething problems.

So far, I've created and am using just one TM. The subject matter I translate is extremely varied, as I work in academic translation - journal articles on anything from palaeontology to domotics - so I felt it was better just to have one TM rather then end up with a plethora of 25 segment TMs. However, I've seen others say that this is not a good idea, though I'm not sure why. What horrors might I be storing up for myself, using only one TM?
