Hello, I would need some help with my situation. The TM upgrade option in the project setting is somehow greyed out. I could upgrade the TM once, but after I worked on another project using the same TM, I cannot upgrade it anymore. The button is just greyed out. Will need your advice. Thanks!

Updating the TM Oct 10, 2017

Hi Samsu,

You are not supposed to "upgrade" periodically, if I am not mistaken.
"Upgrading" the TM means making it (more) compatible with the 2017 version. After the upgrade there is no need to repeat the process...

Upgrade vs Update Oct 11, 2017

Hi Recep,

Thanks for the reply. Oh, I thought "upgrade" means we are updating our TM from our project. So, how can I do that? On Studio 2009, there was an option to update our primary TM, but I cannot find it in Studio 2017. I know there's an update checkbox in the Project Settings, but that only updates something that we are changing in the segments to the TM. But how to insert all of the segments to the TM (updating the TM) once we're done with the project? Could you please advise? Thanks.

Batch task Oct 11, 2017

Hi Samsu,

If the Update checkbox is checked, every time you confirm a segment it gets committed to the TM and the TM is updated with this new content.

If you still want to run an Update task, you can do so by selecting the appropriate files (in the Files view), and right-clicking or selecting Batch Tasks from the ribbon. From there, run the task called Update Main Translation Memories.
