If I have an open translation memory in SDL Trados Studio 2009 and I want to connect or separate two or more translation units from the maintenance menu in "Translation Memory", is there a way of doing so?

Thanks a lot for your help!

One option is to use SDLTmConvert from the OpenExchange and then do these operations in the Studio Editor as described here :

Yes, you are right: split or join.

Thank you very much for your reply. It has been of much use. It would be good if new versions make this easier in the future.
