"How can I transfer already translated documents to Trados Translation Memory for efficient translation management?"

SDL Trados Studio supports importing bilingual files like Excel, CSV, or TMX for creating or updating a Translation Memory (TM).

Importing bilingual files in SDL Trados Studio enables consistency and reduces redundant translation efforts.

The Studio's alignment tool automatically pairs existing translations with their corresponding source documents, allowing the creation of a new TM.

To import a Word file into a Translation Memory file, you need to align documents through the Translation Memories view > Align Documents.

After aligning documents, users can create a new TM or add alignment results to an existing one, enabling the system to recognize and suggest matching content.

When a TM is created or updated, it can be added to the current project, ensuring consistency and reducing manual entry.

SDL Trados Studio supports aligning multiple document pairs simultaneously for TM creation, which is particularly useful for large projects.

A TM can be exported as a TMX file in SDL Trados Studio, allowing you to transfer it to other CAT tools or share it with colleagues.

Importing a TMX file into SDL Trados Studio preserves all segments, tags, and metadata, ensuring consistency and unified translations.

SDL Trados Studio's Translation Memory Management allows for easy merging or comparing TMs, ensuring consistency across different projects and translators.

To update an existing TM, simply open the TM in SDL Trados Studio, apply the necessary changes, and save it, keeping the original TM name or renaming it.

SDL Trados Studio supports partial TM updates, where you can import a filtered or subset of a TMX file into the TM, preserving the unchanged data.

The Align Documents feature in SDL Trados Studio supports segment-level alignment, where users can manually align or modify the alignment of segments for greater precision.
