I hope this is the correct place to put may question.
I have just started working with Trados and already a client asks for the TM of the job done. Shall I send it, or try to negotiate a %?
What is the best way around it?
Thanks in advance for your comments and advice
Mafalda

Just send him the uncleaned files Dec 17, 2004

Your customer can then update his TM by cleaning the files.

It depends what deliverables you've agreed on Dec 19, 2004

If you've agreed on sending TMs along with the translated material, then, obviously, you are bound by the agreement.

To be asked for the TMs to be delivered along with the translated files is a valid and very common requirement often made by clients.
