Hello,
it would be fine if one could import a TMX file into a project. The most useful reason is to retrieve terminology to be sent into a MultiTerm Termbase. I bet this visual method is faster than MultiTerm Extract :=)
Another fine reason is: You keep the segmentation the way YOU want, the processing of the project file will blindly follow the TMX segmentation (well, it should at least).

Or do I oversee something, and it's actually possible to work with such file types?

Greets,
Mike

Here's the link to the app that installs a file type for TMX in your Studio:

Thank you, Walter! Aug 13, 2016

I forgot about OpenExchange...Good to know that there is such a tool.

In the meantime I found a perfect solution by my own:
I export the tmx without any attributes, and only the source language, then I rename the tmx file into a xml file and strip out all remaining 'prop' entries in the header. Works very fine, I get the exact segmentation and a 100% pre-translated file.
This is even a convenient way to maintain translation memories... for example spell checking, filtering and making changes on the fly etc.

[EDIT]
Well, the segmentation is not perfect with my workaround, only 92%, so I have to get that tool anyway...

Thanks and greetings,
Mike
