I finally have enough segments in my TM to generate an autosuggest dictionary in Trados Studio Freelance 2011 (and have paid the license to do this). I have followed the steps given in the manual for generating the dictionary, which created a .bpm autosuggest dictionary file (no idea what .bpm means but mention it in case it's important) and have enabled the autosuggest dictionary function in Tools/Options...but no suggestions seem to be appearing.

Have I missed a step? Is there something else I should have done? I can't find any more information in the manuals, or in past forums on this.

Thanks for any help.

Hi Denise,

Now go to the Project menu:

Project\Project Settings\Language Pairs\(Your source language)->(Your target language)\Autosuggest Dictionaries

and click on the Add button under the Add Autosuggest Dictionaries in the pane on the right.

Navigate to and select the .bpm file you created and with a bit of luck Robert should be your mother's brother.
