Hello,

I have a question regarding Swordfish's compatibility with other proprietary CAT-tool file formats.

According to Max Program's website, Swordfish can handle Trados TTX and WordFast TXML files without a problem. I already work with MemoQ which can handle presegmented TTX files, but apparently presegmentation isn't even necessary in Swordfish. I would like to verify if Swordfish really does handle (not-presegmented) TTX and TXML files without a hitch. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Cheers!

Wouter

Swordfish can segment TTX files but it is better if you have a TTX segmented by the client. There will always be some differences between segmentation done by your client and segmentation done by you, even if you both use Trados.

TXML files are already segmented when they are created so handling them in Swordfish is easy and trouble free.

Regards,
Rodolfo

Rodolfo is the maker of Swordfish III, while I, as a long term user of Swordfish, can confirm that it is better to have presegmented/pretranslated TTX files for translation in Swordfish. Swordfish follows different segmentation rules in TTX files than TagEditor and the segments can sometimes be not what you'd expect in TagEditor.

There is indeed no problem with the processing of TXML files.

Regards,

Piotr
