Hello all, please excuse me if my question is redundant.

I am working on a project that involves a lot of XML files.
At the moment I am using the Trados 2007 package, which does the job well, but I have some special requirements and wonder if there are any (freeware) alternatives.

Here's what I'm looking for:

- INTEGRATED terminology recognition with one-click adding and editing of terms
- QUICK batch editing of TM entries
- Based on TBX and TMX (or at least with a decent interface)
- Easy importing of CSV to TBX
- Lets me save bilingual XML in XLIFF format
- Custom dictionary support
- Web MT feature
- No "intermediate" formats or useless project folders
- If possible, editing of XML directly in Word or LibreOffice
- No bulky "project management" features that clog up the UI

In effect it would be something that works like TagEditor + MultiTerm, just way better.

I doubt you'll find freeware that does all that Sep 12, 2011

I think Wordfast Classic fits the bill, although I'm not sure about XLIFF format. Maybe someone who knows more about XLIFF could comment on that aspect.

Swordfish, http://www.maxprograms.com, uses XLIFF as native format; supports TMX, TBX and imports CSV files; support for XML files is fully configurable.

Swordfish is not freeware.
