Tumatxa, software tool to manage translation memories on a web environment

19.01.2004


Tumatxa is a web application that handles Translation Memories. It has been created by CodeSyntax(http://www.codesyntax.com/en ), a Basque company working with free software and language technologies. The application can be tested on our website http://www.tumatxa.com where two online demos are also available.



What are translation memories?

Translation Memory or TM is a technology widely used in professional translation and localization (unlike machine translation). The idea is simpe, units or sentences from the original text and its translation are stored aligned into a database. When the system happens to find the same sentence (or a similar one), it would propose the previous translation.


These are some of the most popular TM software programmes: Trados, Déjàvu, Wordfast, Transit, edo Translat. The standard for mempory exchange among those applications is called TMX.

Tumatxa handles TMX, and also the .po files of GNU Gettext (used in l10n of free software). It has been tested specifically with the TMX versions handled by Wordfast and Trados. Memories stored at Tumatxa can be consulted (to clear terminology doubts, for instance) without specific TM software, just making online searches. Several memories can be packed to download as a file, also.

Tumatxa is free software. Downloadable from that site. It is not a desktop application. This is a Zope product, a web application that runs on the Zope web application server on machines with Linux as its OS. Zope expertise is needed in order to install it on a WWW site or an Intranet.

We have thought of several usage scenarios where it can be useful for translato(http://www.tumatxa.com/tmx/usage ). So, the "target market" for Tumatxa is probably the organisation, company, public administration or an association of translators, that may install it on a server (locally or on the web)

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
