Hi. I have one TM for which multiple translations are allowed. I want to delete all the older target segments, keeping just the most recent one for each source, and then disallow any future multiple translations. It seems from looking at the manual that although you can change a TM from disallowed to allowed, you can't go vice versa. I have been having a look too at the possibility of exporting into Enlasso and deleting all identical targets except the latest but can't find a way of doing that either. Can anyone suggest an answer?

You'll need to export the TM and recreate it Oct 31, 2007

You cannot change this setting once the TM has been created, neither allow nor disable multiple 100% matches for identical source segments.
