I have a file that contains the word "beavertail" in my project files. But when I go to the TM and search for "beavertail" nothing is found.

I tried batch tasks > update TM. But it's still the same.

Any idea ?

Have you already translated that file? Nov 21, 2013

If yes, have you configured your TM to be updated during translation?
If yes - are you sure that you are checking in the right TM?

Best Regards

More suggestions Nov 21, 2013

In addition to Stanislav's suggestions, you might find some help in a troubleshooting blog post I wrote on updating TMs:

Maybe that will help?

Thanks both of you
Thanks Emma for the tuto, one step was missing.
SDL Studio is definitely not intuitive software.
