Overwriting a translation memory

If you realize that your translation memory contains erroneous information, then you might need to overwrite the content with updated data. There are 2 options there - if you already have another approved version of the TM in an existing file, you can use that file. You can also download the TM in a TMX format and use a text editor to make corrections as needed.  When you overwrite a translation memory, the system removes all the existing translation units from the TM and only after that imports the correct or updated TMX, SDLTM or XLSX file.

To overwrite a translation memory, select it in the list and press the Overwrite TM button.
