SDLTM support

Hi All,

I have got some questions regarding the SDLTM maintenance.

1°) TMX Import
I have just created a new SDLTM, in which I would like to import a TMX file.
The problem is that this TMX contains perfect duplicates (i.e., same source and same target segments). Is there any way to import only one occurence, but merging all the metadata info contained in the custom fields?

2°) Update Main Translation Memory
Because of context, a translator had to modify the translation of a 99% pick-up.
If he confirms (Ctrl+Enter) the segment and updates the Main SDLTM, the segment picked-up from the main SDLTM will be updated and contain the modified translation.
How can he do to add this new translation unit to the Main SDLTM instead of updating?

Thanks for your help
