Translation Memory Exchange or TMX is an xml file format for storing translation units for the exchange of translation memory data between computer-aided translation and localization tools with little or no loss of critical data.
This is how a sample TMX file looks. Here I have given an example of English->Telugu translation Memory.
Translation Memory is useful in the following ways:
- To recollect a past translation that has already been done and added to Translation Memory database.
- Fuzzy search in Translation Memory helps to find out similar translations that can aid a translator.
