G'day everyone

Clients often ask me to make use of a remote TM, but then it turns out that the remote TM is either empty or it contains virtually no matches or even concordance matches for the current file. This means that I waste a lot of time waiting for the server to respond to term queries that end up being non-results. Is there a way that I can query the remote TM to find out what *size* the TM is, so that I can see whether the TM on the other side of the planet is just a dud

Thanks

Don't know May 29, 2011

But in general there is a way to discover what a TM contains: you ask for a Context search for a very common word, for instance "the" in English. If this doesn't give returns, then your TM is empty. And by asking two or three keywords in your text you'll have an estimate of its usefullness.
