Hello,

I would like to evaluate the trial version of Wordfast 3.0 on a project for which the TM is well over the 500 unit limit. How can I split this TM into several smaller TMs that are within this limit. I understand that I would be able to use them together (?)

Many thanks for your time. Kind regards, Michael.

You have to keep the first line and rename each new file. But better purchase a license.

Dear Michael,

You can read from any large TM with the demo version, but you can only write up to 500 segments in a new TM. You can still connect as many TMs you want.

Cheers

Read only in preferences? May 7, 2012

Heinrich, it makes perfect sense, thank you for the tip!

Manuela, do you mean by selecting "Read only" in the "Local TM list"?

There are two columns in the local TM list: Selected and Read only.

WFP3,%20TM,%20read%20only.png

If you tick both Selected and Read only for a given TM, you will get matches from it (if any), but your translation won't be stored in it.
If you only tick Selected and not Read only for a TM, your translations will be stored in it, but you can store more than 500 TU's in demo mode.

Anyway, if your purpose is to check TM's can "scale up", I can tell you already that they do: if a TM has matches to offer, they will be served whether your TM's has 500, 5,000, 50,000 or 500,000 TU's. Thanks to indexing, matches will be served just as fast, regardless of the size of the TM.
