bitext2tmx

Version: 
1.0 M0.1
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

Version: 
2.9.4
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.

Nice open source tool with functions SDL Trados Studio does not provide. Since it is open source, the code can be reused in your own programming projects.

Very useful tool for translation memory maintenance with functions not offered by SDL Trados Studio. Unfortunately, the tool is from 2009 and will not be further developed.

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).
