Hi all,

When I work on projects for SDL and I am required to use GroupShare TMs, Studio 2015 gets really slow in relation to searching the GS TMs for matches, during concordance searches and when entering a segment into the GS TMs after translation. Sometimes I even get a timeout error from Studio and/or it crashes.

I thought it had to do with my firewall but disabling it did not solve the problem. And according the my SDL PMs, other freelancers do not have the same problem with slow access to GS TMs so, according to them, it cannot be an SDL bandwidth problem as someone suggested the other day when I asked a similar question.

The problem is so annoying and slows my work performance down to such a degree that I am tempted to decline work from SDL which I would regret very much.

Does anyone have a solution to this problem, perhaps someone from SDL Supporticon_wink.gif

Thank you.

Annette

Temporary disable your Anti - Virus Feb 26, 2016

Hi Annette,

Thank you for information.

The only solution I could think of, at this moment, is to temporary disable your Anti - Virus (AVG)
and then try to access the GroupShare TM's again.

Anti - Viruses cause a lot s issues to Studio users and may slowdown some of the processes and external connections.

Also make sure you up-to-date with all Windows 7 updates you may have.

Try to follow the proposed solution and let me know if that would work please.

From our side I will continue to search on what else may cause this issue.

Kind regards,


SDL_Roman

LinkScanner Surf-Shield Feb 26, 2016

Hi Roman,

Thanks for your reply.

In the meantime, I have tried deactivating various AVG elements and I have discovered that deactivating the LinkScanner Surf-Shield improves the lookup time to GS TMs significantly and the issue of delayed entering of translated segments is completely gone.

I have noticed from browsing the internet, that many players of online games have experienced the same slow response AFTER installing the AVG AV Suite and that deactivating either the mentioned Surf-Shield and/or the Online Shield component has improved their response times when using online games.

This, I suppose, is a problem for AVG to solve, not SDL Support as suchicon_smile.gif Could you find an alternative solution for the Studio Suite, however, this would be an enormous advantage for you and you product. We would all prefer to maintain maximum security in place when using online features such as dictionaries, ftp servers etc.

Should you require further information for your further investigations, please feel free to send me an email.

Kind regards
Annette
