Dear colleagues,
I would need to know how to filter entries created by a specific person (or entries from a specific date) out of a TM? (I want to have a TM without these entries)

You need to export the TM Sep 27, 2010

with a filter forbidding to export the desired user.
The filter is defined on the export page - look for the part [System fields].
Chose "Created by:" and press add.
In the field "Criterion" enter exactly the user name of that user.
Then press "NOT" and perform the export. This will export all segments but those created by that user.
If you also wish to filer segments changed by that user press "OR", chose "Changed by", add, insert the user name and press again "NOT".
This will then export all segments but those created or changed by that particular user.
Create a new TM and import the exported content - you will have a TM without that unwanted user.
