Hello colleagues,
I'm having trouble setting up a TM in Anywhere and sharing with Pro. It seems to work well within Anywhere, but when doing a TM Lookup in WF Pro I see segments by other users (and in other language pairs) and cannot see all of the ones I've created (the test TM only contains three).
I hope I'm making myself clear (should you want to see the screen captures, just let me know and I'll e-mail them to you). Even though I've entered the Group ID, there seem to be matches from either a general TM or some other users' TMs.
I'm not only concerned with the extra matches that could end up degrading the translation quality/consistency, but also with the possibility that other non-authorized users can access what should be a private TM.
Any help is welcome.
Best regards,

MT? Aug 5, 2015

Did you perhaps turn on some machine translation feature by accident?

Hi Lori,

Thank you for your reply.
Settings are as follows:

In WF Pro:
Perform MT manually
Google, Microsoft and WorldLingo, all off

In WF Anywhere:
MT not set
