That was very helpful, thank you a lot!
Is there a way of working with my own complete and big TM (which would help me a lot) instead of the little one from the client and just send the client the TM that "belongs" to him?
That would be great!

Since you received 5 files, I assume they have the following extensions:
iix, mdf, mtf, mwf, tmw
These files make up the tm in Trados' own format. All you have to do is open the .tmw file from your Workbench. You don't have to create a new tm. All new translations will be added to the tm, and you can return the same five files to the client.
You only need to create a new tm, if the client sends you the tm in exported form, ie. as a txt. file. In this case, you create your new tm, name it whatever you like, and use the option "Import" from the WB file menu.
