Dear colleagues,

Is there anybody who can help me with the following:

I´ve been using Trados for quite some time now, and it works fine. Last week I wanted to re-organize my translation memories and I found out that all my translation memories contain only the sentences of the first translation I started them with. In spite of having clicked on activate and update when opening a new document in Trados, the TM was never updated. Or so it seems, because:
While doing the translation in the editor-window, the memorized segments appear in case of the original text matching them. Which means, they appear,but in TM-view I don´t see them. So I guess, the segments are stored somewhere elst.

Does anybody have an idea what could be the problem?

Many thanks in advance,

Isabel

You see only the first lines Jul 1, 2016

I haven't used TM view much, but I think you can filter the content in different ways, so you could search for your last keywords. Hope i'm right.

The view "Translation Memories" shows the content in "pages" Jul 22, 2016

If you look at the contents of a TM in the view "Translation Memories", you see this in "pages". Because a page only shows 50 segments per default, you need to click "Next page" (right and left arrow on the top) in order to display the next 50 segments.

Because the segments are display in chronological order of their creation, you will only see the first 50 segments you translated unless you scroll forward.

You can change the number of segments shown by default to a max. of 200 by going to "File - Options - Translations memories view".
