No TM update

Hello everybody

I haven't used Wordfast for a long time but there is a problem that keeps occurring to me and which I find very annoying.

When I do a translation with Wordfast (Version 5.52y) it may happen that I have to change certain segments in the process of doing the translation. To be on the safe side, I re-open the respective segment, change it, close it and go back to where I was. Sometimes I also use the auto-translate function just in case I made changes in the translated part and forgot to update the TM.

Now it has occurred to me several times that Wordfast never accepted the updated segments. I sometimes have long translations with repeated sections, and what Wordfast gives me is the initial - and wrong! - translation which I had actually changed, but the system does not seem to accept the update.

Also, I always get only one 100% hit although sometimes I know I created two and I would like to choose the other one but Wordfast won't offer it.

Does anybody know what's going on and can help?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Willnixe

Wordfast license No. Jun 30, 2008

I met with this problem. After re-entering the Wordfast license No., the problem is gone.
However, matches/hittings of segments in Wordfast is low, I need to use Trados instead with the same TM and concordance in many instances.

Regards,
Soonthon L.
