TRADOS TM Change

Changing which translation memory database to use in a project

The translation memory (TM) database is the most important file in your translation system. You must always make sure that you have a backup copy. Every time you have work with translations the TM database will grow in size. For that reason, make sure that you backup the TM file as often as possible.

If you are merging translation memory databases, you need to change the name of the translation memory file in use by the project.
