I have a question on Trados Starter Edition. I bought the 12-month license 3 months ago and unfortunately the TM button/function is not enabled. What could I do?

Thank you very much,

Dear Mr Diehl,

This is Guillaume from SDL.

Could you give me more information about this issue and where in your license is the TM function blocked?

The Starter version can open multiple TMs when they are in a PPX (project package) sent by a client, but you can only open one TM when you translate a single document, and the TM you will have created cannot exceed 5000 TUs (about 50 000 words).

Kind regards,
