These are Project and Filter Settings in my client's TM:

Text fields: Text Field, Project, Customer, Translator.
Attribute fields: Status, Beteckning, Kund, Application, Project, Subject, Component, Client, yhui.

I want to define my own Project and Filter Settings for the client's TM so that I, after having finished this project, I can import every TU to update my own TM. These are my own Project and Filter Settings that I would like to use (don't know if the client allows it though, have sent an email and asked him now):

Text fields: Project ID, Date.
Attribute fields: Category of translation, End client, Translation agency.

I will use TW+TagEditor, SDL TRados 2007 Freelance.

Sorry, but I don't really understand what your question is. Do you want to know whether you can (technically) change the settings? The answer is YES. As long as the TM is not protected by a password, you may change the settings in Workbench.
Whether this will be welcomed by the client if this is his TM is another story and you have - as you seem to have done already - ask the client.
