The TM import takes a long time because TM indexes are recreated each time you perform a TM import operation.


We have reverted to the past procedure, which didn't drop TM indexes before a TM import and created them back after the import. TM indexes are not dropped anymore.


You can fix this issue by deploying the update to WorldServer 10.4.4 (FTP) or to WorldServer 10.4.5 (FTP). Please follow the installation steps available in the readme.txt file from the package.

If you cannot deploy it, contact the SDL Support Team:

  • Log into your "My SDL" Account.
  • Log a support request via Support & Education Support.


  • All systems running WorldServer 10.4.4 or 10.4.5 should have this hotfix applied.
