Can I use a TXML file with wordfast anywhere? With wordfast classic? wordfast pro? I have been unable to get a definitive answer from the documentation online. If anyone knows for sure, I'd be grateful.

txml is the WF Pro format, although WF Anywhere can handle txml, depending on what final format you have to deliver, there is a past discussion on this subject (october 2011 in WF support, started by NRStedman, page 2), but I can't seem to post the link...

TXML is the native format for translating in Wordfast Pro.

also ApSIC Xbench, memoQ and ChangeTracker Jan 31, 2012

Xbench, memoQ and ChangeTracker all support TXML as input. memoQ is the only one of the three that will let you translate them (Anywhere can also do that, as previously noted), Xbench and Change Tracker can be used for concordancing, QA etc.

As colleagues said, TXML is the format of Wordfast Pro. However, Wordfast Anywhere can deal with it perfectly. It can open it just as any source document: File menu > Upload Document File

AFAIK the first CAT tool with TXML support was Alchemy Publisher, I tested it last year but there were some problems (but cannot remember what were these problems). http://www.alchemysoftware.ie/products/alchemy_publisher.html

Swordfish also supports that format http://www.maxprograms.com/products/swordfish.html#formats

Can we consider Xbench as a CAT tool, I am not sure. But it has amazing features although it is only a free tool.

Thanks for pointing this out, I wasn't aware Alchemy and Swordfish supported TXML explicitely.

Well, the original poster asked which software TXML is compatible with, not specifically about CAT tools. ChangeTracker isn't a CAT tool either, and I did mention memoQ was the only one of the three that can be used to actually translate TXML's. I have a short video showing how to convert a TXML into an uncleaned Word document with memoQ: http://youtu.be/_qXzdxhWyDI
I think the same can be done nowaways with Wordfast Anywhere.

Can MemoQ subsegment a TXML file? Feb 1, 2012

Dominique Pivard wrote:

1. Can MemoQ merge and split segments in a TXML file?

2. Can MemoQ subsegment (for its own purposes) a multisentence segment in a TXML file?

What I mean by #2 is: suppose the TXML file has these three segments:

"This is the house that Jack built. Jack is a very happy camper."
"This is the house that Jack built. Jill always wanted a house."
"This is the house that Jack built. Jack and Jill went up the hill."

Can one segment it in MemoQ so that the first sentence of each segment is treated as a 100% match, without actually splitting the TXML segment itself?

Yes. You can split and join as you want in memoQ. When you export the translated document and import that (TXML) back in WFP, what you get is the original segmentation you had in WFP. I just tested it with your examples.
