NotePad Sep 26, 2011

I always use Windows NotePad or other text editors to edit it quickly and save it as "Unicode" coding.

Better? Sep 26, 2011

Thanks for your answer, but do you know of anything more user-friendly? It's quite a lot of text that we're talking about...

Word, etc.? Sep 26, 2011

I've no personal expeience of editing actual TMX files, but is there any reason why you can't simply edit it in your usual W/P programme, just making sure you always save it out again as TXT?

I'm assuming that if necessary you can simply edit the file extension...

Create a native TM Sep 26, 2011

Just a suggestion...

What about importing the *.tmx file in a native brand new "void" translation memory (e.g. Workbench, SDLX 2007, or Trados Studio 2009) and then editing segments (source or target) using the advanced TM edit options to modify it?

At the end you can export again the modified TM as a *.tmx file.
