Hi,

I got this message this morning as I opened the project. The thing is, I have been working with the TM fine yesterday.

I checked the language settings of the TM (German (Germany) to English (UK) and the settings of the sdlxiff which is also German (Germany) to English (UK).

The message then said "to edit the translation memories used for these language pairs, go to the individual language pair level."

I am really at a loss, can anyone help?

You may try this... Mar 10, 2015

Dear Melanie,
I am not sure whether it will actually help but try...

In Project Settings, left pane, do NOT click on Language Pairs ˃ All Languages Pairs ˃ Translation Memory and Automated Translation

but DO CLICK in the bottom of the pane:

Language Pairs ˃ German (Germany)˃English (United Kingdom) (i.e. your language pair) ˃ Translation Memory and Automated Translation


Hope you understand what I mean. There it may appear but do not ask me why... Hope it helps as it did work once for me.

Good luck
Jitka

The solution... Mar 10, 2015

... was to uncheck the "Use specific language pairs" checkbox. All the TMs were in "All Language Pairs", but the Project was being told to look in the specific language pairs where there were no TMs.
