Hi all,

I am working in two projects in parallel. The first one is just fine. The second (which I just created, created a new TM for and imported a tmx for the new TM), but when I click ctrl + enter to confirm a segment and move on to the next, the finished segment won't be saved to the TM!!

Any ideas ?

TIA

have you tried to check if the segment is in the TM but it just doesn't apply to the text?

Try selecting the source text in the segment and press F3, if it shows up in the results, then it is indeed recorded in the TM. This has happened to me before. I solved it by removing the TM, closing the dialog box and then selecting the same TM again. It is a very common Trados "bug" when you import to the TM.

Good Luck

TM set up? Jun 14, 2012

Hi Noha,
please double-check wheter you have defined the TM in the second project. If so, please make sure that the "Update" checkfield is checked under the TM settings.

Also, try to update the TM manually by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+U.

Hello Noha,
could you please post a few screenshots of:
  • your TM settings window (Project Settings > Language Pairs > All Language Pairs > Translation Memory and Automated Translation)
  • your Editor window with the cursor in one of the translated segments that don't appear in the TM.

    That would be most helpful.
