I've received a bunch of inx files from a client for a Chinese to English job. I came across a very interesting post suggesting going throughout the file doing a terminology search/extract first, making a glossary of it, and then translating (http://mac.proz.com/forum/translator_resources/102113-any_tips_on_how_to_build_a_termbase.html if your interested). It sounds like a good idea, and I want to try it, but it seems I have to use txt files with the concordance program I want to use. So thus my question, is there any way to remove the tags in the inx or ttx file, and create a simple txt from them that I can load ito other extraction programs? I would appreciate any advice on the matter. If anyone knows of a good concordance program for Asian or Chinese characters, that'd be nice too, so far I'm going to try AntConc.

export unknown segments Aug 2, 2008


create a simple txt


Use or create an empty* translation memory to analyse the files: following the analysis you can use the "Export unknown segments" option to create an RTF (don't use the format TXT yet): open and save the RTF as txt only, or copy the RTF's content into a notepad file.

That should do it.

* to export really all of them.

Preview plugin Aug 2, 2008

You can also use the plugin for preview (based on ccs). Some of the options allow displaying of ttx in plain text.

Ah got it, yep, that worked wonders. It actually still left a bit of encoding left, but it was highlighted in red, so a simple replace all deleted the red formatting codes easily enough. Thanks a ton for the help saitch and Jabberwock, truly appreciate it.
