Sorry for the bad topic description... here's my problem:

One of my clients provides documents which are partly written in Dutch, partly in English. The documents follow a template, but sometimes certain paragraphs are written in Dutch, the next time in English, etc.

I'm supposed to make two documents out of this, one 100% Dutch, one 100% English.

Just for the record, I don't have a TM for this client (yet), and help how to organize such a TM is appreciated.

I'm sure I could automate part of this process in MemoQ but I'm a little lost how to proceed...

Is there some way of identifying the different parts (other than looking at the language)? If so, file tagging with regular expressions would be a possibility.
