Hello,
Sun released an opensource version of their Translation Editor which is a CAT that can handle XLIFF files. They also released the filters to generate XLIFF files from a number of other formats.

They can be downloaded from here (linux, mac and win): http://open-language-tools.dev.java.net/

It seems quite interesting, but there is one thing which is not quite clear: how do you merge into a XLIFF file your old translation memories? If this can't be done, how can you re-use a previous TM with XLIFF files in general?

Thanks for your replies,
Alessandro

You can always use an XLIFF editor like Heartsome XLIFF Translation Editor, http://www.heartsome.net/EN/xlfedit.html , that includes TM databases based on TMX and TBX standards.

TMX, XLIFF and TBX are 3 standards that work well together. All of them are supported by Heartsome Translation Suite.

Regards,
Rodolfo

Thanks Rodolfo. I was hoping for an answer from you on the L4T mailing list but here is just the same!

Isn't there any open source tool that can perform such an operation?

I was thinking of using the SUN translation editor to work on the localization of OpenOffice.org and obviously we cannot purchase the Heartsome editor...

Nothing open-source yet.

Heartsome removed the free Lite versions from its web site when the Personal Editions were launched. Personal Edition of the XLIFF Editor is not free but it is cheap (US$88).

Lite versions are still available on request for non-profit organisations and educational institutions.

Special versions are available for groups working on open source projects. Contact customercare@heartsome.net and explain what you want to do with the tools.

Regards,
Rodolfo
