SDL Trados: TM Management

I'm currently using SDL Trados Studio Suite 2011 and have completed a number of projects without a TM.

I would now like to create a TM in Studio for this content (from the previously translated materials).

Just wondering if anyone has done this before, if so what are the steps?

Many thanks in advance for your feedback and support.

Best regards,

It's very easy: Apr 24, 2015


The procedure is easy and straightforward: create your TM (check that the languages match), then import all the SDLXLIFF files of the projects you have already translated into this TM using the "Import" function. You can do this in one operation as the function allows you to import several files at once.

This is the fastest way because you don't need to open each project again and assign your TM (which you can still do in the cases where you prefer to review your translation before updating the TM).
