I have been trying to merge several TMs into one big TM by using the update function in Trados Studio 2015.

I choose the TMs I want to have in the big one, choose the second option in the next window (one output TM per language pair), click on "next" and then I get two error messages: "There are two or more fields with the same name" (I can't see any) and "Object reference not set to an instance of an object".

Does anyone know what that means and what to do about it?

Thanks in advance for your help!
