TMX Translation Memory

Multilizer supports the use of translation memories to increase translation productivity. By default Multilizer uses a TMX-file as its translation memory. This enables a light-weight translation memory by using a TMX-file as a translation repository.

The TMX Translation Memory is the default translation memory in Multilizer. It is available in all Multilizer 2011 products.

About TMX

The TMX-format (Translation Memory Exchange format) is an XML-based file format developed and standardized by LISA. For more information about the format, see http://www.lisa.org/Translation-Memory-e.34.0.html.

Multilizer supports version 1.4 of the standard. The compliance has been verified using the TMX Compliance Kit provided by the LISA organization.

A noteworthy detail is that Multilizer uses the srclang="*all*" attribute to specify the source language in the default TMX Translation Memory, thus enabling Multilizer to store translations between any languages in the TMX-file. This complies fully with the TMX-standard. However, this option can be overridden when translations are exported from a Multilizer project into a TMX-file using the TMX Exporter plug-in.
