Translation Memory is not updating

I am translating a project for a client who I have translated for each year for a number of years. Initially I created a TM with the extension _French to English UK_fr.FR_en-GB.sdltm. This file has worked fine for several years.

This year, for each file, I receive the warning 'No translation memories found to update for the language pair French (France)-English (United Kingdom). This happens if I try to update the main TM or the project TM.

I have tried creating a new TM with the same specifications as the project but this does not update either, the message is the same.

Looking back over my last few projects I can see that none of them have updated the main TM, I must have overlooked the warning. I think this has been happening since the last update.

Can anyone help me with this?

Is the Update option checked? Jun 16

Hi Louise,
This is quite obvious guess, but I try it anyway: did you make sure that the TM you expect to be updated (or your newly created TM) is checked in the "Update" column in the list of TM's?
With "Update" option unchecked, you can confirm segments without any notification on the go. You may only get to know about it when you try to update your TM from Batch Tasks (ending up with the message you mentioned).

Thank you Jun 17

Thank you for answering Stepan.
Unfortunately that is one of the things I have already checked.
I have resolved the problem for the short term by creating an AnyTM file and updating that with the previous year's files. Maybe this will have to be my permanent solution.
