My usual approach is to export the TM as a text file, create a new TM in the desired language pair, and import the text file.

It's a fairly simple, straightforward process. When creating the new TM, I always tick the checkbox that allows multiple target texts for the same source text, to ensure that all variations in the imported file are preserved.
