Hi!

Can anyone advise me on why my Trados 5.5 TM is not updated when I clean up an already translated and edited word document (XP) and ask for TM to be updated.
When I go back and check the source text by attempting to translate it again, the 100 % match is the old translation unit coming up and not the changed one.

Is there another way to check that the TM actually is updated? Or does anyone know why it is not working?

Grateful for any ideas.

Checking some settings and parameters Sep 27, 2003

Hi Anette,
Can you please check a couple of things?

Is your TM set to permit multiple 100% matches (this should be displayed under File - Properties as 'Yes' or 'No', IIRC - I use T6LSP, and that screen is different in the new version).

What are your settings in Options - Translation Memory Options - General, particularly under 'changed translation units'?

Best regards, Ralf

TM not updated Sep 27, 2003

Hi Ralph, thank you for your reply.
I am NOT set for multiple translations and the settings under translation memory options are:
Used translation units are left unchanged and changed translation units are merged.

Minimum match value is 70 %, max no of hits are 5.

Will this help?

Thanks
Anette

Sorry... Sep 27, 2003

Will this help?

Er... no, actually, because with these settings, I don't know where the problem is...

Have you posted a query on TW_users? (You might want to search their archive first...)

Good luck, Ralf
