Does anyone know how to clean up a tm which has segments of wrong languages in it, ie if you clean a document into the wrong memory and have incorrect segments as a result.

Since the segments were new to that TM, you should be able to filter them out by creation and changing date/time, which should equal the cleanup date and time.

Is it your TM? Do these segments present a problem for you? I am afraid I miss the point. Even if the TM is not yours, I am afraid I still miss the point. I say leave them alone.

You can export to TMX, eidt the TM using a TMX-editing tool, like Olifant freeware, and import back.

Of course, this procedure is only suitable for a manual processing of not too many segments.
