TMX is the LISA OSCAR standard for translation memories.

Standard conformance

Summary: TMX version 1.4 conformance to Level 1, except that no markup is stripped.

  • All required header fields are supplied.

  • The adminlang field in the header is always English.

  • None of the optional header fields are supplied.

  • We assume that only two languages are used (source and single target language).

  • No special consideration for segmentation.

  • Currently text is treated as plain text, in other words no markup like HTML inside messages are stripped or interpreted as it should be for complete Level 1 conformance.
