I have created a TXML file and my client wants a TM only for this file. Yesterday, I created a new TM and press control+alt+end, I could only have 200 units fed into this TM out of 5800 segments.

I then sent the TXML to the client and asked her to have the segments fed into his TM, and the same thing happened.

Did anyone ever experience the same? What was your solution?

Thank you in advance.

Exact/Fuzzy? Sep 25, 2014


Could those segments be Exact or Fuzzy ones? If so, WF Pro will not add them to the TM using the shortcuts in the TXML Editor unless you edit them first as it expects they are already in the TM.

There are two ways to do that:

1- To make sure every segment goes to the TM without editing (even fuzzy and exact matches and the unedited MTed segments), go to Edit > Preferences > Translation Memory > check "Write unedited fuzzy and exact matches to the TM". Now, Alt+Down, Alt+End and Ctrl+Alt+End will store everything to the TM.

2- You can use the PM Perspective > Cleanup feature with with "Update TM" option (this will add all sorts of segments to the TM without changing any preferences), as illustrated at:

Kind regards,
