Hi! I'm a translation and interpretation student who uses Linux in her laptop. Since I am aware that in the future I will be working for people who uses a variety of CAT tools, right now I'm taking some time in testing compatibility of TMX in different CAT tools. For doing so I've installed some demos of wide used CAT tools for Windows in a friend's computer and I try and see if my TMXs work in them. Until know I've been using bitext2tmx to create my TMX because its TMX work fine with OmegaT. However, the TRADOS demo I downloaded doesn't read these TMX well. If I encode it as UTF-8, it skips some segments like they weren't in the memory and if encode it as ISO-8859-1 it doesn't skip the segments but the characters with accents are omitted. Is there somebody who knows why this happens? What program/method should I use under Linux to create TMX encoding in a way that guarantees the widest possible compatibility? Is there any alignment program for Linux that works with text encoded as UTF-16 (which I suppose is one of the standard text encodings for windows and the kind of encoding I need in order to use my translation memories with Anaphraseus)? Help, please!
