Dear all,

I am in the process of editing a very long document in Word. My client sent me two Word docs (one source, one target). It is very hard to perform this revision with two documents.
Up to now, I was able to generate a TMX TM from the two files.
Now, I would like to create a two column Word file from this TMX, so as to smoothly proceed to perform my revision with tracked changes, and I will later transfer these changes to the target Word file sent by my client.
Do you happen to know how I may do this? (if this is possible).
I have Wordfast and Studio 2014 as CAT tools.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Kind regards,

Heartsome TMX Editor 8 Jan 27, 2015

It is very easy to convert a TMX file to a MS Word bilingual table with a free tool called Heartsome TMX Editor 8. Here's a download link

It is a zip file that does not require installation. Unzip the folder anywhere in your computer and it's ready to use. There will be a menu option Tools that you can select to convert your TMX file.

Display TMX in a web browser, copy the table Jan 27, 2015

You don't need any special software for this.

Issue solved, but I definitely learnt useful material Jan 27, 2015

Dear Andrey,

Many many thanks for your prompt response and very useful information. I will surely use this tool in future.

However, I solved the problem by using Olifant. I uploaded the TM, proceeded to copy all and paste it in Word (using the original format) and it worked. I deleted the unnecessary columns and I created a beautiful table in Wordicon_smile.gif

Kind regards!
