Assisted Translation Expert

Assisted Translation Expert is designed to help in translation work and to achieve higher quality.

Automated translations

Assisted Translation Expert provides users with translations that come from any configured source. Multilizer supports retriving translations from several different formats, such as tmx, Microsoft glossary, Excel spreadsheet, xliff, txt, mld (Multilizer binary dictionary), mpr (Multilizer 5.x/6.x project), and many others. See the latest Multilizer factsheet for more information. Translations can be prioritized by match-% (fuzzy match percentage) or by the preferred order of translation sources.

Translations are copied to the translation editor either by double-clicking a translation or by using the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+1, Ctrl+2, etc.
