Hello everyone

Every now and then I get a WFP client that uses an online TM, and sometimes I would like to have an offline copy of the segments that are fuzzy matches of the segments in the TXML file. I have now written an AutoIt script that attempts to extract those fuzzy matches from the online TM. The script is here:

You need WFP to use this script, and AutoIt also. The script doesn't work with WFA. The script extracts only segments that are fuzzy matches for an existing TXML file. The script doesn't attempt to extract all segments from the client's TM. The script takes about 3-5 seconds per segment. The script does not place any additional burden on the client's TM server. As far as I can tell, the script does not violate any use agreements.

The extracted text is saved to a two column tab delimited file.
