Dear All,

I need your help in customizing a filter in Heartsome TMX editor to find the segments in which the source is larger than target and vice versa. The same check that we all have in Trados. Is that possible?

Regards,
Eman

I have no idea how to do this myself but would be interested in it too. Sep 27, 2017

I have a very large number of TMs in TMX format, and sometimes need to clean them up a bit.

For example, I have a large TMX with EMEA data with quite a few misalignments (see my post on this @ https://www.proz.com/forum/medical/319022-looking_for_properly_aligned_tmxs_of_the_european_medic

AlignFactory has the feature, but as far as I know, you can only run it directly after the alignment process. That is, you can't run it on existing TMX is, which would be great.

I'll have to check, but I think that CafeTran can also do this in "TMX editing mode". However, if the TMX's are extremely large, CafeTran sometimes struggles to open them.

CafeTran cannot be your uncle here, but http://logrusglobal.com/UserFiles/File/TMXEditor/TMX-Editor-2.0-Help-EN.docx tells:

Relative size – searches for segments in which the difference between the length of the source text and the translation differs by > 60%


Didn't test it.

For what it's worth: in the past I've used an Excel sheet with a formula to compare the length of A1 and B1 etc. Just propagate it for all 4 million lines .

From my testing, the Logrus TMX editor can't handle big stuff very well at all.
