Cross-platform Tools for Translators

Anchovy

Anchovy icon

Anchovy is a multilingual cross-platform glossary editor and term extraction tool based on the open Glossary Markup Language (GlossML) format.

Anchovy is included in Swordfish III installers as free plugin.

Anchovy solves the usual problems associated with glossary data exchange in translation industry: character corruption when using CSV format or extreme complexity when using XML formats intended for terminology management, not glossary exchange.

GlossML is the right choice for storing glossary data. A glossary is a list of terms and their definitions. GlossML allows you to store just that in XML format, without further complications.

Anchovy converts your legacy glossaries from TMX, CSV (Comma Separated Values) or other delimited formats to GlossML and lets you export your files to these formats:

CSV Unicode with user-defined delimiters.
HTML Web pages that can be personalized using XSL stylesheets.
TMX TMX 1.4, for easy import into standard translation memories.
TBX TBX with default XCS or proprietary extensions, customizable using XSL stylesheets.
XML Any XML based vocabulary, using the incorporated XSL transformation engine.
