Hello

I would like to open in OmegaT a translation saved in Xliff format in MemoQ (mqxlz).

Is there any solution to open in OmegaT a bilingual file from another Cat tool?

Thanks

Best regards
Philippe Drevet

See yahoo group archives Oct 29, 2014

I don't know the answer, since I never deal with these files, but if nobody else answers you here, these questions have been discussed at great length on the Yahoo users' group,
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/OmegaT/conversations/messages

I'm sure it can be done, somehow or other.

For XLIFF files with existing translations, you can use the Okapi Filters Plugin for OmegaT:

You will perhaps need to add the .mqxlz extension to the filter (Options > File Filters).

Unzip it, and use at own risk Oct 29, 2014

As far as I know, that file is a zip file. OmegaT doesn't unzip zipped files -- you have to do that yourself. I've never had such a file, so I don't know what's in it, but presumably there will be a MQXLIFF file.

Use the Okapi filters in OmegaT, but remember that translating XLF files in OmegaT is risky if you don't have the file's own program installed to verify that the file still works.

No problem Oct 29, 2014

I've successfully performed several jobs with XLIFF files generated by memoQ. However, using the Okapi plugin resulted in a file that the client could not import back to memoQ.

fix or tm Feb 26, 2016

I've had those issues too. However, I could easily fix them by editing the files in a text editor. If not, I guess the TM from OmegaT can be imported in memoQ to pre-translate everything, if another layer of segementation has not been used in OmegaT to further segment mqxliff files.

No need to unzip the mqxlz. As Samuel says, memoQ allows to export a memoq-custom XLIFF bilingual file that has extension mqxliff.
