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: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
