Is there a way to run a comparison of two TMs? I have access to both Trados and memoQ.

Any ideas are appreciated!

In my idea, you can compare only source languages [comparing target language is done similarly].
1. Open one TM
2. Use source texts of the other TM as the new texts to translate (e.g. by opening the TM's *.tmx file in Excel and extract only one language).
3. Apply analysis (e.g. in Trados Analysis)
4. The report tell you how the TMs are similar or different (by reading percentage matches).

There are several free options Mar 28, 2016

You can compare two TMs directly, or you can convert them to TXT files. I'd go for the latter so you won't see all the mark-up stuff. Your CAT tool can probably take care of the conversion, or you can use Heartsome's TMXEditor (free). You should then use a file comparator, I use (a.o.) KDIFF3 (free).

If your CAT tool can edit TMX files (CafeTran can), you can probably use one TM to "edit", and the other as a TM. Haven't tried that one.

Cheers,

Hans

You can use SuperTMXMerge:

You can compare TMs and then merge them if needed.
