Hi, I am hoping you can help me. I have been working for a couple of months on a project for a particular client. It keeps going on and on, and since I have other clients (who doesn't?) I need to stop working for that one particular client just for a while, so that I have a chance to service my other clients. Now, this one particular client wants my TM for the project. They are not supporting Studio, but use an entirely different system, but still wants my TM, so that another translator can take over from where I left off.

Now, I have been using my huge, private TM for this project. How do I export a TM from the project? I have no intention of handing over my entire TM, just what belongs to the project. How do I do this?

Thank you in advance.

how to do export a TM Apr 27, 2013

I presume you haven't got a project TM, which would only contain the segments translated in your current project. That would be the quickest solution.

If not, create a new TM and import your sdlxliff files into it. Then export it as a TMX, which is the format your client will need if he/she doesn't use Studio.

Or, if you've only been working for this one client recently, you could open your big TM in the Translation Memories window, and export segments filtering by "created after" and a suitable date. Best to do that with a copy of your TM.

If you're interested, you can read more Studio TMs in a blog post I wrote recently:

HTH,
Emma
