Importing TMX files

Here is guidance on importing these TMX files into a selection of well-known translation memory systems.

The translation memory files published on BydTermCymru are TMX (Translation Memory eXchange) files.

TMX files are open XML format files, which have been developed to transfer translation memory data between different translation memory systems.

They cannot normally be opened on computers except through translation memory systems.

We suggest that you follow these steps to import the TMX files into your own system.

  • On the page with the details for individual files, click on the name of the file
