Language:

Category: 
Translation memory
Version: 
1.0 M0
Price: 
€ 0,- (open source)
Description: 
bitext2tmx is an open source programm to segment and align corresponding translated senteces (of a source document and its translation, both in plain text format) and generate a TMX file from the results for use in CAT tools such as SDL Trados Studio. The corresponding sentences used are currently read in from two plain files.
Comment: 
bitext2tmx is a fast and stable program and a good replacement for the alignment tool in SDL Trados Studio. The application is not installed, just extract the download file into a directory of your choice and click on the *.jar file to start it. bitext2tmx is a Java application, so it requires Java in order to work on supported operating systems (Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, Windows). Version 1.0 M1 of bitext2tmx is in development.

CodeZapper

Category: 
Word processing
Version: 
2.9.1
Price: 
€ 20,-
Description: 
CodeZapper is a collection of Word VBA macros to clean Word files before being imported into CAT software like SDL Studio. Word documents are often inflicted with unnecessary and even harmful codes or redundant tags (e.g. language tags, track changes tags, spellchecker tags, soft hyphens, scaling and spacing changes, redundant bookmarks etc.)
Comment: 
All these codes and tags may impair translation texts and as a consequence also translation memories. Text gained by OCR or by a converted PDF file may be even worse. CodeZapper can remove unnecessary tags while retaining formatting and layout. It can be run as a macro (for a single file) or as batch (for several files). No installation is required. The dot file containing the macros is to be copied to MS Word's startup folder. CodeZapper is useful for LSPs when introducing a XLIFF-based CAT systems.

This editor can open very large text files in many formats. Therefore it is very useful for maintaining large files exported from SDL Trados Studio (*.tmx) and MultiTerm (*.xml).
