Add segment alternatives to a "Keep newer duplicates" TM?

Working with segments where auto-propagation is manually disabled to account for different translations, I wish to keep different versions of these segments, while otherwise just allowing for newer duplicates. 


Is there a way to store different translations for the same segment or segment, while keeping the "Keep newer duplicates" setting?


Is the solution to just create a new TM at q given point, with the "Keep all duplicates" setting enabled, then revert to "Keep newer duplicates" to avoid polluting the TM?

Idea: create a high fuzzy by adding an extra space or unique character to the source. The latter would allow you to list all alternative translations.

Yes, the above might work. You might also filter on repeated segments to translate them first.

Nice. Thank you Igor and Hans.

Another option, just for future reference.


- Change the ProjectTM TM option from "Keep newer duplicates" to "Keep all duplicates".

- Memory > Import > Import segments from project

- Change the ProjectTM TM option back to "Keep newer duplicates"


Note to self: While navigating through already translated repeated segments, avoid storing to TM (just use )Move to previous/next segment).


Repeat periodically as needed.

Just as another note: whenever you perform TMX maintenance to remove doublets, your alternative translations will get lost.


If you don't ever clean your TMs, there's no problem ;).


My suggested solution doesn't interfere with maintenance.
