I did a job for a new client and he asked me to send him the uncleaned bilingual files (ttx). I did so, but I have a strange feeling...Is this procedure usual? He didn't send me his TM along with the files to be translated. Somehow I feel as if I gave him something I shouldn't or mustn'd have given.
I feel confused!

This seems quite normal to me.

Quite common Sep 26, 2005

It's quite common to send uncleaned files. The client would be able to align the translation anyway, so you are just not making it harder for them.

Thank you! Sep 26, 2005

Yes, of course! I can think clearly again. The uncleaned file has nothing to do with my TM.
Thanks a lot for your answers!icon_smile.gif
