Need advise on quality reviews with TM.

I usually work with online TM's from the client.

I am able to add the TM - but lately when I try to check on a certain term within the TXML file I get either 'nothing' or a 'can't find TM' (but the correct TM is selected). I redo the 'adding' of TM to re-establish the connection but I get the same error.

Now my questions are:
Can you show a online TM same as a glossary in a new tab in Wordfast?
Is it possible to show the complete TM in a word doc/notepad etc (sometimes this is easier to deal with to get a complete tone of the client translation - plus misspellings are easier picked up)

Any advise you can give me about working with TM's in wordfast as a quality review - not as a translator.

I am using wordfast pro 3 in demo mode.

"show the complete TM in a word" Mar 5, 2015

If by "show the complete TM in a word" you mean "download an online TM to your PC" then the answer is no, you can't do this.

The first thing that I would do is ask your client if the online TM they set up works for them with the same version of WFP. I have had issues with local TMs not loading correctly which were remedied with processing an offending TMX file within Xbench. I've got no idea what else you can do with the online ones, though.
