Reversable xliffs for perfect match

Sometimes we would like to reverse an xliff in able to use perfect match. For example, we translate a text from German to English, the customer makes changes to the English and asks us to translate back into German. We would like to be able to edit the original German-English xliff so that we can perfect match it into the new English-German xliff.

    I think your solution would also work albeit a little more work.  Also neither will be as good as a perfect match, but then reversing the XLIFF won't provide a perfect match either!  It's quite a complicated file an SDLXLIFF with the source containing segmentation info and more and match context being based on criteria that cannot simply be reversed.  So I think the TM approach is probably the best one and won't drive you crazy trying to make the reversal work!
