How to Convert Wordfast TM into TMX

The most convenient way to convert Wordfast TM into TMX format involves Xbench

A Wordfast TM file has .txt extension. Actually, it is an usual .txt file delimited with tabs in a special way. Converting it into TMX format that allows TM exchange between all other CAT tools can be done in several ways. The easiest and quickest way involves Xbench (either free or paid version).

Step 1: Load your Wordfast TM into Xbench. There is a special file type Wordfast Memory there:

wordfast-glossary-properties-v2

Do not forget to set the checkbox Ongoing translation.

Step 2: In Xbench, select Tools > Export Items, or simply press CTRL + R.

xbench_export_items

Export Items dialog box appears. Specify the settings in Output section: what languages are considered to be source and target, and the path and the file name for the .tmx file of the TM.

xbench_export_items_dialog_box

Press OK button. The .tmx file you get is the converted Wordfast TM.
