Filetype for Wordfast TXML

Filetype for Wordfast TXML

By Trados AppStore Team



TXML documents, as generated by WordFast Professional. Documents may be untranslated, partially or fully translated.

Once installed, you will find that WordFast TXML will now be listed under File Types in the project settings of Trados Studio.

If you install the filetype and then don’t see it in your list, or you think the installation was too fast and it didn’t seem to do anything, then please go to Options -> Filetypes and then look on the right.

It probably says "additional filetypes exist". Click that, select the missing filetype you installed and you'll be good to go.

Wordfast TXML is a file format used by Wordfast, an alternative computer-assisted translation (CAT) tool. Since Trados Studio is the preferred choice for many users, the Wordfast TXML File Type integration allows us to support TXML files while retaining their stored translation data.

Getting Started

1.Minimum Requirements

Trados Studio 2017


You can install Wordfast TXML as a supported file type, either directly within Trados Studio via the Integrated AppStore or alternatively you can download and install from the RWS AppStore 


Once installed, TMXL can be accessed in various ways:

  • Trados Studio Tell Me Feature
  • Default Path: Go to File -> Options -> File Types
  • New Project: Create New Project -> File Type Identifier Settings

Tip: Update your selected project template with your new file type preference, after completing the project preparation tasks. Alternatively you can update Project Templates by going to File -> Setup -> Project Templates, select your project template to edit and then manage your list of supported file types.

  • Existing Project Selected: Project Settings -> File Types

Tip: You can add new files to an existing project, as long as the project is recognised as a Studio project and not a Single file project. However file type need to be manged prior to adding new files (converstion from native to *sdlxliff)

Note: If you don’t see TMXL as a listed file type, you may need to click on "Additional installed File Types Exist" to enable it as a supported file type.

XLIFF Manager for Trados Studio


XLIFF Manager for Trados Studio

By Trados AppStore Team

The ProblemYou need to share files for translation or review and the people you are sharing with don't use Studio, they can't support SDLXLIFF, and they want to use a CAT tool. You also do so much of this you need to have a better way of managing the process. You want to be able to share one XLIFF on a multi-lingual project and have the translators complete the target language.The SolutionThe XLIFF Manager is the solution to this problem as it provides the following core features:- export your Studio projects as vanilla XLIFF 1.2 files- export your Studio projects as Google Polyglot XLIFF files- choose whether the target language should be set or not on export- choose whether you export all the segments in your files or not- import the translated XLIFF files back into Studio and update your Studio projects- map unsupported languages from your clients system in support of the import- generate reports of the changed work- be in control of the end to end process with a project management view in StudioPlanned Enhancements for the future updates- progress bars while waiting for the export/import. Useful for large projects- support for tracked changes in the import- add support for an XLIFF 2.1 export- add support for an SDLXLIFF export (to help with the management of an SDLXLIFF file workflow outside of a package)- we're open to suggestions in the RWS Community!To learn how to use this application, please please check the Documentation tab.
