Translation memory properties

In the Translation memory properties window, you can change the name and the descriptive details of the translation memory, make it read-only, 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 here the languages of the translation memory or how it stores context.
