Translation Memory Exchange File
Translation Memory Exchange (TMX) files are a widely-used file format for storing translation memory data.
These files allow for the exchange of translation memory data between different CAT (Computer-Assisted Translation) tools. This is important for translation agencies and companies that work with multiple CAT tools.
TMX files contain multiple translation units, each consisting of a source segment and its corresponding translation. This format allows for easy management and sharing of translation memories.
