I know updating TMs have been discussed here before, but I didn't find the answer for my problem in them, unfortunately.
I'm currently working on a large project that other translators are assigned to as well (it's huge), and the PM from the agency sends an updated TM every day (assigned translators also have to export the days's work to him at the end of the day, in order to help each other with updated TMs every day).

My problem is, I don't know how to attach the new updated TM to the translation file in progress.
How do I do that?
When I re-open it in Editor to resume translation, it just opens it, I'm not given the possibility to attach a new tmx file.

What do I do?

Hope you understand what I meanicon_smile.gif

How to update your TM with a new TMX file Aug 6, 2013

If you're in the Editor window, go to Project> Project settings>Language Pairs>All language pairs>Translation Memory and Automated Translation.

Highlight the TM you want to update in the window on the right.

Click "import" above the list and follow the wizard.

Only new translation units will be imported by default, and existing TUs will be overwritten if you enable the corresponding box.
