Is it possible to switch around source and target language in a TM and save it as a new TM? Example: I have a German-English TM for construction terminology. Now the client has sent me an English-German job, for which I would like to be able to draw from my German-English TM. Can I somehow convert my German-English TM into an English-German one?
Any help will be most appreciated.

Exporting the TM and importing the file to a new TM with switched languages should work.
