Two cases that treat approximately the same problem.
The global question is:
How do I work with txml files?
And specifically:
How can I get out part of one txml file and insert it into another?

Case one
I have two txml files ‘tourism’ and ‘middle ages’ for two different projects. Now I discover that an important amount of segments of the one have been recorded in the other. No idea how that could happen, but how can I get the right content into the appropriate file?

Case two
I created different txml files for different tourism related projects. Now I would like to get the content of all the different tourism files into one and only txml file?

Wordfast Classic Data Editor Feb 23, 2012

Dear Ingo,

I think this will be much easier if you use the Data Editor of Wordfast Classic (even the demo version).

Just have one TM as the main TM and the other as BTM. Then, you can simply cut and paste.
