Although pretranslation works with current TM (it gets all 100% matches from the TM), it will not use MT (Microsoft). It works just fine when translating normally. When I pretranslate (2014), I get to this screen which confirms the use of MT.

I tested with both Studio 2011 and 2014.

This was mentioned here too

... it’s a settings thing? I had a quick play and produced this video last night of my quick test doing the same thing with Microsoft Translator :

I wonder if you are making changes in the global options for an existing Project or something like that... perhaps?
