TM plugins

Translation Memory plugins add support for Translation Memories in Multilizer. Translation Memories are databases along with translation matching logic. Translation Memories are used to store and re-use translations.

  • Tmx TM; this plugin creates a TMX file which is used as Translation Memory; it stores new translations in a TMX file and searches for existing translations there.
  • Trados TM; this plugin adds support for integrating Trados Translation Memorin in Multilizer.

Localization Templates™

Multilizer® Localization templates™ is a user-friendly way of extending Multilizer support for file formats.

While Multilizer scanners (and scanner plugins) just give a support for file formats, a localization template contains the rules on how to use the scanner.

Localization templates are used by choosing File->New from template...

There are localization templates for following formats:

  • INI files localization
  • Key files localization
  • Properties files; another way of localizing .properties files
  • Static website
  • Dynamic website
  • SVG (scalable vector graphic) files
  • etc.
