Dear Colleagues!

need urgently your expert advice!

I have a project with lots of files + translation memory.

I imported translation memory, it works fine.
I tried to pre-translate the files, but nothing worksicon_frown.gif

It looks as if translation memory and files exist separately.

I am using sdl trados 2011 sp2

... to answer with just this information. The process is generally quite simple. So maybe this will help:

  1. Go to the Project Settings for your Project (not Tools -> Options)
  2. Make sure you have a Translation Memory there
  3. Now go to Project -> Batch tasks -> Pretranslate
  4. In the settings page of the wizard make sure the settings are going to do what you'd like
  5. Finish

If this doesn't help perhaps we can do a quick Skype call or a webex to see what you are doping. This should be straightforward.
