This is an issue haunted me for a long time, and after trying Studio 2014 it seems no conspicuous solutions yet.
Let me explain the term "asymmetric" here, there are a bunch of files, and a part of which require a little different target language translation, e.g. A.doc, B.doc, and C.doc require en-US->zh-CN language pair, but B.doc and C.doc only require en-US->de-DE language pair, now it is so called "asymmetric".
For a long time the turnaround solution is to create a project including all the files, and after the project creation swith to the different target languages in the Files view to delete the unnecessary files. The disadvantage is obvious if the quantity of required target languages goes up, either tended to delete by mistake or waste a considerable time of unnecessary files analysis.
I wonder if the adding project files dialog during the project creation could be smarter, for example, adding files for each language respectively. How is this idea? Hopefully the dev team could consider it.
