Hello!

I'm working with SDL Trados Studio 2015 Freelance SR3 12.3.5262.0.
I needed to add may variables to my Variable List, thus I downloaded Variables Manager from AppStore. After installing it, I can see it at the Add-Ins tab, open it, select a TM or a language resource templete, and paste a variables list in the box.

Nevertheless, while after clicking "Add to variables list" it appears a message saying "The variables list was add to the selected Translation Memory", nothing is added. What can be the problem here? (BTW, The translation memory I'm trying to add the terms is the same of the project I'm currently working on).

I appreciate your help


Kind regards

Clarisa

Do you mean that variables are not in the TM? If you open the TM > Settings > Language Resources > Variable List > Edit, you don't see them there, right?

If so, I can't help you, sorry…

Otherwise, if variables are there, but not recognised in the Editor (blue underline), you might need to re-index that TM (TM > Settings > Performance and Tuning > Re-Index TM). Then try again with the Editor if they are recognised.

If re-indexing still doesn't work, I must say that sometimes this Variables Manager app didn't work for me. I'm not sure about the reason, but I think the reason is realted to the fact that the TM has zero variables before entering some variables via Variables Manager app. This app is very helpful but I've had problems with new TMs. That might be the reason for you as well…

I hope it helps,

The variables aren't there! I tried to re-index the translation memory (but that was useless, as not new entry was notices in my variable list). I will try your suggestion of adding the variables to a translation memory with an empty variables list (the one I was using had about 30 words already). I appreciate your suggestion.
