Hello all,

I have a basic question and he reason for it is that I am still making my way with Trados 2014.

The project manager said it is ok to do my project on the Trados that I have as long as she gets the TM.

My 2 questions are:

1- How to make the TM and properly give her what she is asking for?

2- I have 7 files to do, 2 are down and 5 to go inshaAllah.

Is it too late to make the TM she is asking for?

Looking forward for your answers and thank you in advance.

Create and attach a new TM Apr 1, 2015

I would create a new TM, and attach it to the project.

When I am finished with the translation, I select all the files in the project and have it update the TM (right click the project or files, and select: Update translation memories or whatever it's called).

By the way, I am surprised she asks for the TM and not to have the sdlxliff files back. After all, she can do this operation herself and have the project input in whatever TM she prefer.
