Dear everybody,
I'm experiencing a problem with Trados 2017.

I'm using my personal TM (let's say Elena.sdltm) on a series of daily translations wich, for my convenience, I ordered in weekly projects: Project XX Week 1, XX Week 2 and so on, adding files day by day. This is my first time using Trados frequently, as I've worked mainly on clients' online CATs so far and with Trados only on small projects.
Today I'm on my 1st day of week 2 and since the segments are quite recurring I used my personal TM to work faster; so I opened my new project "XX Week 2" and attached my TM Elena.sdltm. When I started working on it I noticed that there wasn't any suggestion from the TM.

Problem being: when I opened my TM, I saw that it wasn't updated with Week 1 segments. I checked the settings, and the TM was set on "update", and I save frequently. It looks like the week 1 project created a sort of sub-TM (located in studio 2017>projects>projectname>tm): in fact, when I open the week 1 TM file, it contains all the segments I translated last week.

I know this is probably a problem caused by my inexperience with Trados, I hope somebody can help.

"project TM"? Feb 12

Hi Elena,

there is in fact the concept of a main TM plus a project TM. Is this of any help? http://producthelp.sdl.com/sdl%20trados%20studio/client_en/Edit_View/TMs/About_Project_Translation_Memories.htm

Hi Ricki,

thanks for the reply. I probably have solved the problem in the meantime. I'll be sure if I did tomorrow, in case I'll check in depth the link you sent me.
