Is there any work-back that I can use?

Preferably I'd like to run the files through Studio with my updated project TM, with tracked changes activated, and see the final files with my updated changes tracked.

Hi,
I delivered a large post-edit job to the customer.

Unfortunately (it's one of those weeks) I forgot to activate tracked changes.

Is there any work-back that I can use?

Preferably I'd like to run the files through Studio with my updated project TM, with tracked changes activated, and see the final files with my updated changes tracked.

I am wondering if I should try the following solution:

I remove the project from my list in Studio.

I reimport the forward package from the agency, which will overwrite my edits.

I open the files with no pre-translate as a batch task.

I select track changes.

I then run a pre-translated with the updated TM from the first time round.

This will give me a finished package with changes tracked.

Anyone see any risks here? .... if not I'll give it a go.
