Interoperability: Exchange Standards for CAT tools
The only way CAT tools can exchange their translation memories, terminology records, translation projects or segmentation rules easily is by using exchange standards, thus enabling a more open world. With these standards, data are no longer locked in software.
Here is a partial list of the main standards:
- The TMX standard [ http://www.lisa.org/Translation-Memory-eXchange-TMX.34.0.html ] (Translation Memory eXchange) is used to exchange translation memories between CAT tools. Most CAT tools can export or import TMX files;
- The TBX standard [ http://www.lisa.org/Term-Base-eXchange-TBX.32.0.html ] (TermBase eXchange) is used to exchange terminology-oriented data between terminology management or CAT tools. This exchange standard still awaits full acceptation amongst developers because it is much more complex to manage than translation memories, there is no universal terminology template and every client has its own terminology needs. For those reasons, LISA came up with a simplified version of TBX: TBX-Basic [ http://www.lisa.org/TBX-Basic.926.0.html ];
- The XLIFF standard [ http://docs.oasis-open.org/xliff/xliff-core/xliff-core.pdf ] (XML Localization Interchange File Format) is used to exchange complete translation projects between CAT tools. This standard has yet to be integrated in all CAT tools but is gaining popularity. The OASIS [ http://www.oasis-open.org ] (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards) is behind the XLIFF format;
- The SRX standard [ http://www.lisa.org/Segmentation-Rules-e.40.0.html ] (Segmentation Rule eXchange) is used to exchange segmentation rules found in the alignment process of CAT or alignment tools.
