The project has an activated TM but repetitions are not being picked up. Even simple repeated single-word elements are met with "No matches found". Trados 2011 is not really intuitive so I imagine I need to fiddle around with some complexity or other. Any ideas?

Need to activate "Update" Jun 19, 2013

I had this problem when I first started using Studio. If it is what I think, then is easy. You have to make sure that in the list of your TMs, the check box "Update" is checked.

Tools - Options - Language combinations - Choose your combination and all your Tms should be there. Note that there are a few checkboxes (activated, check....) and last one is Update (I guess, mine is in Spanish).

I believe this should solve the problem!

Still problems Jun 19, 2013

Many thanks for the information. I did have the TM within the project setting and it was ticked for update. However, when I looked under language pairs as you suggested there were no TMs listed and the "Add" facility was deactivated. There was an old TM under "All language pairs" and I was able to add the new TM. The TM now appears under the Norwegian-English language pair but the icon for the TM is deactivated (update is ticked) and it hasn't made any difference - still no picking up of repeats. I imagine a solution will "eventually" arise!

Confirm the Segment Jun 19, 2013

In my experience with the translation pieces of Studio (and I could be completely incorrect), once you have finished one of the segments, you need to 'Confirm the segment' (Ctrl + Enter) to be added to the TM. If you do this on the first rep, it SHOULD come up on the next one with the translation inserted.

Might want to try it and see if it works!

not quite Jun 19, 2013

Well, I tried confirming the first segment then the first repetition but at this stage in the translation I don't have any second repetitions, so I don't know if that works. I remember that in Wordfast it just happened automatically. But many thanks anyway.

Ctrl - Enter Jun 19, 2013

Actually you may well be right about Ctrl - Ent, which I wasn't using to move from segment to segment (my TM was empty). Unfortunately I've discovered that with my PC and keyboard this command doesn't work and I've noticed that other people have experienced the same problem in the past. They appeared to resolve it by an adustment to certain system files, but that wasn't in Windows 8!

ctrl-alt-ent Jun 20, 2013

ctrl-ent takes me to the next unconfirmed segment of the text. To confirm the segment you're on use ctrl-alt-ent.

This is for Studio 2011, latest version, but I have Windows 7 and not Windows 8.

May your problem be this simple!!!!!

it works Jun 22, 2013

Yes, ctrl-alt-ent works! Being new to Trados I had confirmed all the segments (using the "confirm" icon) after checking through them at the end of the translation, not realizing that one needs to confirm during the translation in order to get text into the TM if it's to be of use when one is actually translating.

Many thanks Filipa - John
