The buttons of Trados tag editor 2007 which are supposed to save a segment (set/close) or to "translate to Fuzzy" are grey and cannot be pressed. I had forgotten to close the memory of my last order when I started working. So I closed it and created a now one in the middle of the file. After that the buttons turned grey... Currently I cannot "set", just "close" a segment. If anybody has an idea how to change that please let me know!

I am looking forward to your comments!

Try this way Aug 20, 2014

You should save and close file, then first open new TM you created, and re-open .ttx file; buttons should function, and then click through translated part to save it in TM. When creating TM, make sure that you tick off box Exclusive at the bottom of Workbench.

This should work. In case you get .ini file with TM, tag settings must be set first (.ini file opened/selected) to be able to open .ttx file and have all buttons functioning.

Or just press Aug 20, 2014

"Connect to Workbench" button. It should work if the language pair matches.
