Having read the previous thread about the difficulties of handling big files in WFP, I would like to share my negative experience with middle-sized TMs.
The other day I imported a TMX file with 220.000 segments into WFP. I have to admit that the import process itself was quite fast and smooth. But after that, the software was not able to handle the memory at all. As I finished with a segment and tried to move to the next one, WFP needed at least 15 seconds to close the current segment, open the next one and complete TM lookup. I have already allocated the maximum available memory (1470 MB) to the software and switched to text view, but the problem still persist.
Your problem is definitely not related to the size of the TM: I'm using a TM with 320,000 units and moving from one segment to the other only takes a fraction of a second (in table view). And I'm using 256 MB (ie. the smallest possible value) in memory preferences. What kind of document are you translating? Do you get the same problem even when translating shortish documents? I'm running WFO 2.4.4 on a 64-bit Windows 7 Pro laptop with an SSD and 8 GB of RAM.
