Stingray Document Aligner


Stingray is a cross-platform document aligner designed to assist professional translators in the production of translation memories from existing translated material.

Translation memories generated by Stingray can be used in most modern CAT (Computer Aided Translation) programs, including Swordfish.

Use Stingray to correct existing TMX files and for converting them to other formats.

Export Formats

Stingray exports aligned translation memories in these formats:

CSV Unicode with user-defined delimiters.
TMX (Translation Memory eXchange), the vendor-neutral open XML standard for the exchange of Translation Memory (TM) data created by Computer Aided Translation (CAT) and localization tools, published by LISA (Localisation Industry Standards Association).
Trados TXT Unicode memory exchange format used by versions 7.x/8.x of SDL Trados.
XLIFF 1.2 Standard localization exchange format supported by most CAT tools, including Swordfish.
