Does anybody know if it is possible to "reverse" the source and target languages in a TM? Case in point: I have a technical translation PTBr>ENG and the client already has an extensive TM ENG>PTBr. Is it possible to re-engineer their TM to become PTBr>ENG so that I can benefit from the concordance function on industry terms?

Just export the TM to a txt file, create a new TM with the relevant language direction and import the exported txt file. Voila!
