Multiple Translations not being saved when "Overwrite PerfectMatch Translation" is ON?
Thread poster: Rento

Aug 3, 2017

Hi, first time poster here.

I have setup Trados 2015 to basically work how I need it to, however I think with my current settings, I am no longer able to have more than one translation unit associated with a single source unit.

I noticed this happening after I selected "Overwrite PerfectMatch translations" (a Pre-Translate Files option), which I also need because I work with manuals that are regularly updated and the content can overlap quite a fair bit among all of the manuals I work on. Failure to have this ON means that my old PM translations are not updated with content that may have been changed in a separate manual.

I also sometimes want to have multiple translations for the same source unit, so I will type in a new translation unit but Trados does not seem to want to save it as a new translation unit and simply overwrite the TM.
Does anyone have any experience with this or have a work around they could offer me? Thank you in advance.

P.s. I always update my TM with "Merge translation units" selected.
