I have for some time had trouble getting TMs to update in Studio 2011. I have tried everything suggested in the forums but ultimately nothing helps. To begin with the TM updates for just a few segments of the translation, then it stops doing so. Everything is behaving normally in the translation and I've updated the main translation memories but when I open up the TM nothing extra has been added. So I use the final resort of importing the sdl xliff file into the TM, and this works, until around 50-70 segments have been added. When I subsequently import the sdlxliff file, it fails to add any more segments to the TM, and of the few segments which were successfully added, one can see from the numbering that several are missing.

Has anyone any idea about what may be happening here and does anyone know if these TM updating problems are also encountered in Studio 2014 (I would gladly upgrade if I could get this thing to work).

Cheers ..... John K

What is the Number of translation units per page under Options Translation Memory View?

Cheers,

That makes sense Mar 6, 2014

Hi Bernard,

What you said alerted me to the possibility that I might have to scroll down onto another page to see more segments. And, of course, they are all there. The missing segment numbers I presume are for segments that are repeats of previous ones.

A simple solution to an imaginary problem. Brilliant.

Many thanks.

John
