Problem while updating a TM with SDL Trados Studio 2011

I just installed Trados Studio 2011 and I would like to update a TM with a new document.

My problem is that in the online help, the instruction is:

"File > Batch Tasks > Update Main Translation Memories from the menu bar"

The problem is that while the new document is open and the TM also, when I click on File Batch Tasks, I only have these 2 options :

Export files


Custom... (but it's greyed out).

Would anyone know what I could do to resolve that?

Thanks a lot,

Try from Project Configuration Menu Aug 8, 2016

Open the Project Configuration of the project in which is the file you need to translate. Select the TM you want to use and click on the Import icon above. Then you can import a bilingual file, or another TM and update the one you are using...

I hope this helps!
