I want to know about few features which available in omegaT or other open source tools. Please suggest me.

2.Import the .doc format
3.Import the .doc format and export to .xlf

I am looking for this above features pls suggest the open source tool for this features. If not open source then pls suggest the other commercial tools that support this. I know SDL Trados support this but i want to know about other CAT tools.

Let me refer you to the the OmegaT compatibility HowTo and also to OmegaT's Documentation. These are just two pointers.

OmegaT can't do this Jun 18, 2015

You need to open the XLF file in a plaintext editor, e.g. Akelpad, and then select all text, and copy and paste it into Microsoft Word, and save it as a DOC file. It will then be in DOC format... although I'm not sure if that is what you want.

2.Import the .doc format


OmegaT can translate DOCX, but not DOC.

3.Import the .doc format and export to .xlf


OmegaT can translate DOCX, but not DOC. Furthermore, OmegaT can't export the translatable content of a DOCX file to XLF format.


Say, why do you want to turn your DOC file into an XLF file? What do you intend to do with the XLF file after you've converted it from DOC?

1.Export the .xlf file to .doc format

Only the tool that created the .xlf file can do it. Okapi Rainbow can generate a translated .docx (not .doc) file from a translated .xlf file it created.

2.Import the .doc format

Okapi Rainbow can only work with .docx files, not .doc.

3.Import the .doc format and export to .xlf

Okapi Rainbow can do this for .docx files (not .doc).
