Hi all,

I have just relicensed my WF Pro to install it on my new computer.
No problem up to there, BUT when hitting "new/select TM", there is no TM at all in the list (I have for example a big TM on which I commit every translation I do...)

Any idea?

Thanks!

You should copy your TMs and glossaries (if any) manually and open them in WF project as usually.

list does not equal actual TM's Jul 12, 2012

I don't think that the disappearance of the list reflects the disappearance of your actual TM file(s). Somewhere on your system there is a whateveryounamedit.txt file that constitutes your TM. Where it is depends on how you organized it when you created the TM.

The list would have been helpful because when you click a TM in the list, you can select "edit" and then see where it is located, but I would be hard-pressed to believe that the original file was deleted.

Once you have located your actual TM.txt file, go to Translation Memory and select "add TM" and use the "browse" button to navigate to the file location, give it a symbolic name again, and you're good to go.

And why any TM or glossary should be there on a new computer? You should have transfered them, as well as, possibly, your project(s).

Well... Jul 13, 2012

Thanks for your comments.

I will open them manually one after the other, as it seems it's the only solution.

Thanks again!
