Hello everybody!

I am using Trados 2017 (newbie I admit!) for packages from an agency. Same field but different TM each time, so when I find words or segments that I have translated for a previous text I'm not able to retrieve them and I lose a lot of time. Is there a way to create a TM gathering all those (server based) from previous projects?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Roberta

Create a special TM for these projects and link it to each new project Feb 16, 2017

If you go into the project settings, you can add extra TMs to a project, even if it's a package from your agency. I do this all the time. When I'm finished with the project, I export it to my local TM so that I can leverage ut for future projects.

Add your own tm Feb 16, 2017

I am not sure I understand your complete set-up, but normally you create and use your own TM, regardless of what you get from clients. So, if you work with a server-based tm or a packaged tm that you will return, you also have your own local tm (field-based or general) to which you save your segments. Hope that helps.

Thank you! Feb 16, 2017

Thank you Roy and Lianne for your kind reply.

I think I got it, when I receive a package, going to project settings> TM I can:

1-add my personal file-based translation memory, so that during the translation I can store all the units in it too.

2- create a file-based TM for each project and at the end export it to my personal file-based TM.

I only hope I can open a server and a file based TM at the same time with Trados 2017 Starter edition :S

Anyway, I appreciate both your very useful answers!

Thanks a lot again,

Roberta
