Here you can download an AppleScript to compact TMX files by removing identical segments that only differ in punctuation, spaces and numbers (while keeping one unique segment pair for every set of matches). Please note that punctuation is removed from the resulting TMX file. All numbers are set to 0 (normally your CAT tool will insert the correct numbers while insertion fuzzy matches). Segments pair where source=target and segment pairs that don't contain any letters are removed too.

The script shows how to parse and process a TMX file and later rebuild it, using AppleScript.

Further removals/clean up actions can be added at request.
