Hello there,

I am working on different translation memories which consist of final translations from different projects. I was wondering, if it is somehow possible to save project number or some information for each file exported into TM. My goal is to make this information visible somewhere when clicking on random TM segments to see which segment comes from which project.

Is it possible?

P.S I am using SDL Trados 2011/2014/2015

Thanks in advance!

Erwin

Fields Jan 21, 2016

Hi Erwin,
You should define the fields that best identify the source of the TM item. For example, you could define subject areas as a multiple-value field, a customer field and free-text fields for comments or whatever else is relevant for you, such as project name.

The fields are defined for the TM, which means that if you manage several TMs they should all have them (you could create a new TM based on an older one).

When working on a project, though, you have to remember to update the TM fields.

I wish there was an option for an automatic prompt to update the TM fields on each new project, like in Workbench, otherwise some of us sometimes forget to do so.

HTH
