How to Define User Access to File-based Translation Memories

This topic describes how to password protect a file-based translation memory. This is particularly useful if you have created a translation memory to be used by someone outside your company.

If you decide to password protect a translation memory, you have to define passwords for all of the available access levels; everyone who tries to open the translation memory will be asked to provide a password (including the administrator).


To assign passwords to a file-based translation memory:

  1. In the navigation tree in the Translation Memories view, select the translation memory you want to edit.

  2. If the translation memory does not appear in the navigation tree, select File > Open > Translation Memory from the menu bar.

  1. Select File > Settings from the menu bar (or you can right-click the translation memory and select Settings from the shortcut menu). The Translation Memory Settings dialog box is displayed.

  2. Select Access Rights from the navigation tree. The Access Rights settings page is displayed on the right.

  3. Specify a password for each of the available access levels. Whenever you or another user accesses the translation memory, you will be asked to provide the password.

  4. Click OK again to save your changes and close the Translation Memory Settings dialog box. Changes are effective immediately.
