Translation memory properties

In the Translation memory properties window, you can change some of the details of an existing translation memory.

You can change the name and the descriptive details of the translation memory; you can make it read-only; you can save document names in new entries (or stop saving them). You can also check the number of entries or the path where the files of the translation memory are. In addition, you can add, remove, or change custom fields.

You cannot change the languages of the translation memory. You cannot change the way the translation memory stores contexxt.

To learn more about setting up translation memories: See Help about the New translation memory window.
