Correcting same entry in different files

What do I have to do so that I do not have to correct the same entry twice?

Imagine I receive ten related files for proofreading, I correct an entry in one of the files and enter the corrected translation into the memory.

When I go to the next file, I still have to correct the same entry.

How can I avoid this?

I don't think I can click on "Translate All" because that will correct that sentence in the second file but, what will happen to the other entries in that file that have been translated by a different person and are not into the memory I am using?

If you have the sources files, you could:

1) take one of the translated files, make the necessary changes in it,
2) then copy all the translated files and clean the copies into a translation memory,
3) then take a source file, run the translate option, correct it and clean it into the translation memory, and so on.

I've never done this myself, but I think I might work.
