FAQ & SUPPORT
Frequently Asked Questions
…and answers concerning TMX Assistant.
Will TMX Assistant be useful for me?
TMX Assistant won't be useful for you, if you don't use translation memories or work with just one huge TM file; TMX Assistant is optimized to work with projects containing many smaller TMX files and does not support single huge translation memories.
Is TMX Assistant a translation application?
How can I export a TMX file with translation memory from the application I use for translating?
If you're using SDL Trados 2007, open your translation memory (tmw file) in Translator Workbench (TW4Win). Choose File > Export and click OK. Remeber to update it first by right-clicking your project files and choosing Update TM.
If you're using AppleTrans, click the corpus window and then choose File > Save As. Select "TMX Format" from the File Format pop-up menu. Click Save.
If you're using STAR Transit, open your project and choose Project > TMX Export, choose TMX Export file and then click Start export.
If you're using OmegaT, choose Project > Create Target Documents. You'll find your TMX files inside your project folder.
If you're using a different CAT tool, check its documentation.
What is the data displayed in the Inspector window?
We believe TMX Assistant is quite straightforward to use, but if you happen to feel lost (or just need some useful hints), you may click the Help button, conveniently located in various dialog windows.
The help system contains not only detailed tasks and options descriptions, but also some useful hints. It's also available online.
