How about the tutorials and descriptions delivered with the software? Jun 18, 2008

They do contain the description you need.

In a nutshell: The difference between Multiterm (a termbase) and translation memory is, that MT is storing terminology (ie. separate words or phrases), while TM is storing complete sentences (better: translation units).
A translation unit consists of a piece of source text with the corresponding piece of target text. Usually those text pieces should be sentences.

So to create a TM you will either need to start translating using the Workbench or to align your already existing files (source and target) using Winalign.
Please refer to user manuals for how to do that.
