I played around with the maintain-function. The original TM (mdb) had 50 segments, which were visible in the windows left and right. Then I imported a tmx, which I previously had created from wordfast. Maintain took a lot of time and announced, that 8300 segments were imported. But I still cannot see anything else than the 50 original segments. Why is that, and why is Maintain so slow importing and exporting compared to Wordfast and Trados?
Size of the tms-file is 114 Mb, which is huge compared to the 1 Mb I imported from Wf.

Can someone explain?
Regards
Heinrich

There should be several pages in your TM May 6, 2007

Hello Heinrich,

In SDL Maintain, TMs are by default displayed on pages, each page containing 50 segments. You should be able to scroll through the TM and view all your segments segments by clicking on the arrow buttons in the toolbar.

I cannot say anything regarding the speed when it comes to importing. I have always had the impression that Trados is a lot slower than SDLX when you import big TMs.

If you feel that your translation memory is too big in size, you can compact it. Open the TM in Maintain and select Tools > Utilities > Compact Translation Memory. The TM should be considerably smaller afterwards.

HTH

Regards,
claudia

Thanks Claudia May 7, 2007

That explaines why I see only 50 segments. I have discarded those huge files, something must have gone wrong when importing these.
