Hi there, I am new to TRADOS and have a question.
I am doing the first translation on trados and have created a transation memory.
How do I activate the TM to save my translation while translating?
The program keeps telling me that no TM is opened (but it has been created)
Thanks so much.

There are lots of SDL Trados tutorials online Apr 10, 2014

to help you get started, and are useful even if you have used the product for a time. Here is a Google search I entered for you to get you started:

Trados is a complex translation tool, so it is not a great idea to accept projects requiring it until you have a command of at least the basics you need to use it efficiently.
