What's New in SDL
Detecting language please wait for.......
Hello, I just installed the new (German) 2021 version and came across a possible loss. I would like to open a new TM within a specific project.
In the frame "Start" - "project settings" (Projekteinstellungen) - "All language pairs" (Alle Sprachpaare) - "Translation Memorys and machine Translation" I would like to open a new TM.
So I go to "Use" (Verwenden...) - "Databased Translation Memory" (Datenbasiertes Translation Memory).
Here I can select only ".sdltm" files!
In the 2019 version here I could also select TMX files which were easly transformed in a ready to use TM. Isn´t that possible anymore, or did this beautiful quick import function just moved to another place?
Thanks for your answers!
In the release notes you'll see that some features have been removed to slim down the size of the application. They were removed because the telemetry showed us they are really not used…
Paul said:hopefully you also noticed how much better the installation process was for Studio 2021 without it
Paul said:a small price to pay
Agree. Not only the installation process but the workflow process…
You're right... it's the same name. But it's a little trick we put in the product to confuse users! This "Upgrade Translation Memories" does a completely different task!…
In addition, I cannot find the 'Upgrade Translation Memories' feature.Where is it now?
In the release notes you'll see that some features have been removed to slim down the size of the application. They were removed because the telemetry showed us they are really not used a lot. The upgrade capability (that I also liked!) was part of this.
However, you can put it back by downloading and installing this:
Just type "power" into the search in the appstore integration, download the app, and then click here:
You'll find the zip containing the installer in this folder alongside all the other non-sdlplugin apps that require manual installation. So then close Studio, then unzip and run the installer:
You'll note it was quite a large download, and hopefully you also noticed how much better the installation process was for Studio 2021 without it. Based on the usage stats I think it's a small price to pay for the benefit of the majority of users who don't use this feature at all.
Once complete you should have this feature back:
On the QuickUpgrade... I'm afraid this is lost altogether. It apparently had more difficulties to integrate as a separate application so it's been lost completely. So you don't see this anymore:
The workaround will be to do this as a separate exercise.
So sad, It worked perfectly for me, and I used it frequently!!
Agree. Not only the installation process but the workflow process also goes faster now.
If you right click on the TM name, you´ll find the Upgrade Translation Memory button.
You're right... it's the same name. But it's a little trick we put in the product to confuse users! This "Upgrade Translation Memories" does a completely different task! It just runs through the process of preparing the TM for UpLift:
The "Upgrade TM" feature Stepan Konev is after is a much more useful one in many ways... can be used to merge TM as well as upgrade old legacy TMs:
Paul Filkin Thank you for clarifying this.
Stepan Konev sorry for misleading you.
Ana Eleane said:Stepan Konev sorry for misleading you.
No worries! Thanks to your comment we discovered a new 'little trick' after all
So, the only option left to open a ttx file is to create a new TM and import the ttx into it?
No... we were talking about TMX not TTX. You can open TTX if you install the power pack we have discussed.

Just a thought... you could also use the Glossary Converter for this... fast, painless, and can run outside of Studio so you won't need to break your stride:
I don't have this option in my Glossary Converter (I just downloaded and installed the latest available version). How can I have this option in my version?
Can you share the front screen? Like this:
I don't actually have the latest one. Just noticed.

I just downloaded and installed the latest one... and I get this:
I've lost the SDLTM!
Fortunately, also for you, if you go to the appstore you'll find this:
You'll probably need to uninstall the "latest" one first, then install this. That worked for me and I'm back. I'll remove the latest from the store temporarily until Gerhard has time to resolve the problem... or show us the error of our ways.
Actually I had some older version installed in the year 2019. First I thought that was the reason why I didn't see the SDLTM option. However, when I installed the latest one, nothing has changed.
