Hi,

I received a folder containing a .po file (with associated .archive, .locres and .mo files).
I need to convert it to TMX (or XLS/CSV).

I can open the file in a program called Poedit, but it only allows export to html, which does not help.
All other options I've found online surpass my computer abilities by far...

Is there a straightforward way to do this?

Onward via HTML? Nov 11, 2017

Can't you just export to html first, and then convert from there to one of the other formats?

Several CAT tools have a filter for PO files (e.g. MemoQ), so you could simply open it there, populate a TM and then export to TMX. Xbench too should be able to do the same.

Thank you Nov 11, 2017

Thank you, the import via memoQ did the trick.

If you open the .po in OmegaT, and use Create Translated Documents, you will get a TMX of the .po content at the root of the OmegaT project.

Yes, that's the sort of thing I meant with "All other options I've found surpass my computer abilities by far..."

Translate Toolkit is fairly straightforward, as far as tools in this category go.


  1. Install a recent release of Python (Python 2 >=2.7.9 or Python 3 >=3.4) which includes pip.
  2. Run cmd.exe as an administrator (required to install the toolkit; after it is installed, the toolkit can run in a non-administrator terminal)
  3. Run the following commands:
    Code:

    pip install translate-toolkit
    pip install lxml


  4. Run the desired command inside cmd.exe (you will want po2tmx)
