I use a general TM for all my translations for one particular client. The client requires me to send a specific TM for each job I deliver. I thought I had found the solution by translating the file using my general TM then creating a new TM, clicking "Commit all segments to TM" then exporting as tmx but this only adds a few of the segments (there are a lot of 100% matches in the files, for example, and they all seem to be ignored). Can anyone tell me how I can copy all the segments in a particular file into a new TM? Thanks!

It is easy enough to create a TM for this customer BEFORE STARTING TO TRANSLATE (or, even, for each project) and set your general TM to Read-Only.

Then, if desired, add the content of the new TM to your general TM.

To have 100% and unedited fuzzy segments to TM, you have to check 'Write unedited fuzzy and exact segments to a TM' from Preferences > Translation Memory.

Thank you,

John
