I realize this issue has been addressed before, so I apologize for being repetitive, but I have found no satisfactory solution in any of the threads. When using the termbase with Trados 2011, in longer paragraphs many of the terms in the termbase near the end of the paragraph do not appear as recognized. This was always a problem, but it seems to be getting worse; now even shorter paragraphs are presenting this problem. The main termbase I use has nearly 4,000 words in it and the search depth is already set on maximum (999). Any insight would be appreciated.

The problem seems to be getting progressively worse to the extent that, in some segments, even short ones, the term recognition window states that there are no matching terms although I know there are. I have tried all suggestions I have found on this website so far to no avail. Someone in another thread suggested it might be some kind of bug, in which case it seems to be a matter for SDL to resolve. In the meantime, we are left with expensive software with seriously diminished functionality.
