Hey everybody,

Recently, I have done a translation for a client in my own TM, the TM in which I do all my work. Now the client wants me to send them a TM of this assigment, but I don't want to send my whole TM to them. Is there a way to create a TM with the document that I did for them, so I only send them 'their translation'?

(I guess that in 2007 I would open the document in a new TM and just walk through the sentences one by one, but I don't know how to do this in 2011).

Thanks for your help!
