Why do I have to add my TM a second time during project creation in Studio 2014?

During project creation I add my TM I use for the project, but then when I have completed the last step of the project creation I get this error message:

"The translation memory 'D>\...sdltm' could not be found. Click OK to specify its location, or Cancel to disable this translation memory."

So each time I create a new project I have to browse to add this TM (even though I already added it a few steps earlier in the project creation).

Is there any setting I can change so I don't have to do this double work each time I create a project?

Did you move the TM? Jul 13, 2015


When you create the project, it takes the settings of your project template. At the end of project creation, it checks whether it can find the TM and probably can't find it at the location that was stored in the template.

Check that the location stored in the template (you can see it when you move the cursor over the name of the TM) is correct and if not, modify it. You should not face the problem anymore after this.
