FIGURE 7 Data mapping in a newly generated TMX file
in what can be envisioned
to be a project memory that
extends across multiple
documents and folders.
To organize the bitexts for
conversion, it's desirable to
first extract the bitexts out
of this folder structure and
then group them together by
language pair and module.
The conversion process must
then extract the content
from the bitext groupings
and combine it together in
one memoQ TMS TMX file
for import. (See Figure 4 on
page 30.)
The bitext files are not
structured according to the
TMX standard, but they are
now XML-based, which
facilitates conversion to
TMX. Previously, the bitext
export from LogiTerm
was to HTML, which made
conversion more difficult.
Bitext File Structure: A bitext
file has a large header that
contains all the metadata in
several different sections.
The translation units,
which contain only source
and target text and no
metadata, are contained in
nodes that are children of
www.ata-chronicle.online
the  node. (See
Figure 5.)
Because memoQ TMX
requires the translation
unit metadata to be located
together with the translation
units themselves, it's
necessary to distribute the
bitext metadata from the
header to each translation
unit in the converted TMX
output file. (See Figure 6.)
When the newly generated
TMX file is imported into
memoQ TMS and displayed
in the translation memory
editor, some of the data is
mapped to the standard fields
that memoQ supports and
some is mapped to custom
fields so that users can
determine the provenance of
the translation units. There is
no context information in the
generated TMX file because
LogiTerm does not support
ICE matching. (See Figure 7.)
A LogiTerm module
can contain thousands of
bitext files. Therefore, most
customers opt to have one
TMX file generated for each
module and each language
pair represented inside
each module.
