One of my clients has sent a project package, without TM. The project has several files with one bigger one. I generate TM for the project I created a new project with the files and new TM (remember I asked to provide Word version of each file but they don't Word format of bigger file), except the bigger file. Now I want to use this TM in client provided project package. How it can be made possible. This is important because there are lots of repititions in that bigger file, which I want to avoid typing every time.

Hopefully I've made myself clear.

To add a TM to an existing project... Nov 28, 2012

... activate the Project (so it is bold in the list in the Projects View) and then click on the following:

Project -> Project Settings -> Language Pairs -> All Language Pairs -> Translation Memory...

Now add your TM using the Add button on the right hand side.

Which edition is required? Mar 2, 2018

I have Studio 2017 Starter and cannot add TMs or TBs to packages received from clients.
If I upgrade to Studio 2017 Freelance, will I be able to do add TMs and TBs to received packages? Or do I need Studio Professional for that?
This information is not clear in the edition comparison chart at the SDL website, and I want to be sure.

thanks a lot!
