Cross-platform Tools for Translators

TMXValidator

TMXValidator logo

Check the validity of your TMX documents in any platform with TMXValidator.

Most CAT (Computer Aided Translation) tools rely on TMX (Translation Memory eXchange) standard to exchange translation memory data. Unfortunately, some tools produce files that are not valid and others do not accept TMX documents that are correctly formatted.

TMXValidator checks your documents against TMX DTD and also verifies if they follow the requirements described in TMX specifications.

The source code that accompanies the article XML in localisation: Reuse translations with TM and TMX was improved and a graphical user interface was added to make it friendly for final users.

If TMXValidator tells you that your TMX file is not valid and you wish to fix it, you can use these tools:

  • A good text editor, like VIM
  • An XML editor like XXE .

The source code of TMXValidator is available under Eclipse Public License v1.0.

TMXValidator users can inspect the code to understand why the program complains at an error in a TMX file or to confirm a bug/omission in the validator program.

Errors found in the source code should be reported to tech@maxprograms.com.

TMXValidator supports TMX versions 1.1 , 1.2 , 1.3 and 1.4

Executable versions (binaries) of TMXValidator are included in Swordfish III installers.

The source code of TMXValidator is available in the following SVN repository at SourceForge:
