Export as TMX instead of TXT May 30, 2014

Simply save the translation memory as .tmx instead of .txt. It works!

You just have to follow the steps below:
After the alignment has been completed in WinAlign, go to Settings>Project>export> Check Translation Memory Exchange Format (TMX)

Saving as txt needs very tedious settings in windows.
