Hi again - thanks for clarifying!
Working between jobs, I forgot to close the TMX for one job and open the TMX for the second job, so now I have one incomplete memory and one mixed up one.
How can I separate them? Remove the wrong data from the first TMX,
Unless this represents a real problem, I would just leave it in.
... then add it to the second TMX (maybe I can simply use the BAK copy to update the second one?).
Exactly: just create a copy of the .bak file, change it back to .doc (as otherwise it won't be recognised in the cleanup dialogue), and run a cleanup, updating your TM.
Which files (of the many that Trados produces) should I use?
Er... how many files does Trados produce, other than the .bak file?
And while on the subject, which of teh Trados files can be eliminated as not necessary?
Don't get your point here - each TM consists of five files: eliminate one of them and run the risk of killing your TM...
You may want to keep TMs in a separate folder from translation projects.
Or are you using Workspace? If yes, simple solution: forget Workspace...
