I have reoccurring jobs for different models from the same firm.

Is it preferable to keep one TM for each model or to make TM to all the models?

One TM for a model helps spotting the change from the previous model, but it create multiple TM files which is needed to be added to each project, especially when new model inherit function from previous more advanced model.

One TM solve the multiple files problem but you can't see the change from the previous model it also big file and it takes more time to CAT tool to search in it. Also it is more likely to be corrupted and you lose the entire TM.

Suggestion anyone?

Depends on your program Aug 2, 2016

The answer depends on the particular program(s) that you use. My favorite OmegaT can handle multiple translation memory files and lets prioritize them. Thus, various patterns of reuse of previous TMs are possible. I prefer creating a new project for every new job and reuse TM(s) for the same model(s), as you dub them, from previous projects prioritizing them as necessary.
