every time I go to next segment I have to wait for several seconds before all translation memories/machine translations/termbases are searched. It takes few seconds.

I'm wondering if it is possible to work on current segment and set Trados to check next x segments for all TM/MT/TB in the background and cache results. That way going to next segment would mean virtually no waiting.

Is something like this currently possible?

Hi Tomasz,
if you are using the newest Trados version, then the new features (fragment search, match repair) are very demanding and take time to compute, especially if you work with very large databases. To get want you want I advice you to do the following:

Restart your computer and clear the RAM before starting in the Editor with a large project and big databases.
If you work with a Project TM, the search will be that much faster if you just tick 'Concordance' for the large databases and uncheck 'Lookup'.
When you start in Editor, click with your mouse in a content-rich segment, it will take the most time for the first search; wait until the search completes; the subsequent searches should be faster.
There is no live pre-translation, this would slowdown Trados even more, but you can achieve a similar effect by lowering the Auto-Propagate setting to around 60-70.

I hope this helps you,
