I have found an sdlxliff file format of the same file too.
Is there any way? I saw sdl produced SDLXliff2Tmx but my 2007 license is expired and I cannot download it for free

Exporting from XBench Jan 16, 2016

Load your SDLXLIFF file to Xbench (select Project - New, then just drag and drop your file on the Project Properties dialog). Click OK in each dialog to return to the main window. Then select Tools - Export Items. The Export Items dialog will open. Select the "All items in project" radio button and select "TMX Memory" as the output format. Enter the output file path and name and set the source and target languages. You can optionally adjust other available settings. Click OK after you done.

Segment status Jan 16, 2016

Can you check your SDLXLIFF file? Obviously it must be translated. Also segment status must be set to Translated otherwise Xbench will not recognize segments as translated. I assume you don't have SDL Studio, so you can open the file with a text editor (e.g. Notepad) and search for conf=. If you find strings such as conf="Draft" but not conf="Translated" then this is the cause of your problem.

If this is the cause and you have a text editor that does not corrupt your national characters you can replace conf="Draft" (or similar) with conf="Translated" directly in the file (make a backup copy of the file first!). Match the case exactly, e.g. do not replace conf with Conf. Now Xbench export should work.

This is a "quick and dirty" workaround so you may want to wait and see if somebody else has a better advice.

Tikal is the command line version of Okapi Rainbow Jan 18, 2016

The file you downloaded contains the rainbow executable, which is the GUI version.

You load your file on the Input List 1,set languages and encodings (the latter is utf-8 most of the time for xliff and tmx files), and then go to the Utilities > Conversion Utilities > File Format Conversion menu. There you will find the TMX Document option.

It works with sdlxliff files, so it should also work with standard xlf files.
