Goodmorning.

I am new to Wordfast PRO and I am receiving from the client multiple TMs for different batches of the same project. Is it possible to select more than a TM at a time searching in multiple TMs using the TM lookup?

I have been trying to do it following this path: File -> Open Project -> Preferences. In the tree on the left I select Translation Memory and Local, add the TMs I need and select the respective check box. The problem is that I get a warning message saying that the TM I added already exists and it will be overwritten. The result is that I get a blank TM!

At this point I think I am skipping some stage in the TM selection. Could you please help?

Thank you all

Valeria

Read the "manual" Dec 17, 2009

You can go here: www.wordfast.com/Wordfast_T/Wordfast_6_T_Help.htm and read the relevant steps, under "Managing Projects" > "Creating or opening a TM".

Dear Valeria,

While you are in the "Translation Memory" window, make sure your click on "Open" not "New" button.

This is a common mistake made by new users causing what you described. But once you notice that, everything should be OK.
