Hello experts,

I have Trados Freelance 7.0 and Windows XP. The TagEditor works fine for .ttx files. I have got a sdlxliff.ttx file to translate yesterday. It is quite surprising that the translation available in TM is not reproduced when I open the new segments. Not only this, it does not fetch me the same or similar segments which I have translated in the same file. The target segments remain blank.

The matching translation is shown in Workbench. So, I have opened it on a different monitor. As and when, I get a same or similar segment, I have to copy the translation from Workbench and then paste it in the target segments. It kills time.

What is the reason behind this problem and how I should fix it?

Thanks in anticipation.

I don't know how to fix it, but you can insert the translation by using "get translation" or Alt+Shift+Insert. At least it is quicker than copying and pasting.
