I have a problem with a TM shared in 4 different translation projects within Trados Studio 2017.
In Studio, I have 4 projects and each of them have 2 TMs: a project-specific TM and a global TM (shared locally – not on a cloud or LAN service – by all those 4 projects).
The global TM has 4 fields and I would like them to be updated based on the information I set for each project.
I have indicated such information in "Translation Memory and Automated Translation" menu -> "Update" but, when I confirm the translated segments, the translation units of the TM report just 2 filled-in fields (not all 4).
Let's say that, e.g., my global TM has "field 1", "field 2", "field 3" and "field 4". I have defined the information that has to go into each of those fields but, when I press CTRL+ENTER or run a batch task to update the TM, the translation units report just "field 1" and "field 2" duly filled-in.
I have opened that global TM into the Translation memory pane and the 4 fields are there so it seems there is a problem with the TM update process rather than with the TM itself.
Have you got perhaps any idea on how to make Studio fill-in all the 4 fields of that global TM?
Presumably you have also set the update in your Project Settings? You need to make sure that you have put the values you want to be used against each field in here and not just in your File -> Options:
"Translation Memory and Automated Translation" menu -> "Update"
it seems I have set the relevant fields properly:
- in "project settings", I see these TM field values:
- in the same section, the TM "update" box is flagged:
- in "File -> Options", I see this:
