Symptoms/Context
A Translation Memory (TM) seems to have become sluggish or contains undesirable duplicate Translation Units (TU). You may also encounter issues when using or trying to upgrade the TM.
Resolution

Solution:

Recreate the translation memory (duplicate TUs are automatically omitted from the import and some structural errors are fixed):
  1. Export the content of the affected TM, by opening it in the Translation Memories View and right-clicking the TM's name and choosing "Export"
  2. Create a new TM by right-clicking your original TM's name and choosing "New Translation Memory From"
  3. Open the TM created in step 2 in the Translation Memories View, right-click it and choose "Import", to import the .tmx generated in step 1

Root Cause
TM is old and large and has not been re-indexed for a long time, or it has been damaged in some way (by a system crash, data transfer, a 3rd-party application, etc.).
