Good morning all,

About a month ago, I bought Trados Studio 2011 and installed it on my virtual machine. Since then, I've been working with it, and it seems to work fine. I can translate, save as target etc. etc.

However, when I go to the Translation Memories view, none of my TM's seems to be populated with segments, they're all empty!

Of course I made sure to properly open them, I checked all the checkmarks for 'update TM' etc. but they remain empty...
There's only two TM's with data in it: one that I imported a TM from a client to, and one which miraculously started filling itself while I was translating. But there again, there's something weird: both TM's stored exactly 50 TU's, and not more. The translations they were attached to however, contain far more than 50 TU's.

Has anyone encountered this problem yet? Or do you have an idea what I've been doing wrong? Thanks a lot for your help.

You see 50 segments in the first window. Click the blue arrow to go to the next 50.
You can also set this to 200 through tools>options>translation memories view.

Your other TMs are probably empty because you're using project TMs. Try a forum search for "empty TM" and you'll find more detailed explanations.

Good luck!

Thank you Emma Jun 20, 2012

I now see more than 50 TU's indeed! I'll quickly check out your other tip for the empty TM's.
