.tmw File Extension

Developer: SDL
File type: Translation Memory Data File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .tmw. Files with the file extension .tmw can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .tmw files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .tmw file?

Document language translation applications included in the Trados software product line use a translation memory data file for the conversion of written text found in one document entered into a Trados translation application to another language supported by the program. These translation memory data files are integrated with certain data storage standards used for archiving linguistic content and translation libraries that can be read, interpreted and used by Trados document translation applications. These programs also implement custom encoding standards into the content of these translation memory data files so it can be stored in the TMW file format. These translation memory data files are affixed with the .tmw extension and are saved in a format suitable for database management and data updates. This means these translation memory data files can be automatically uploaded by Trados document translation programs into predesignated Web servers owned and managed by SDL, developers of the TMW file format and the Trados document translation software product line. This process is done to update the database stored in those Web servers, which are called translation memories. This in turn improves the accuracy of Trados document translation programs in terms of translating written content from one language to another, because new entries are constantly added to the database stored in SDL Web servers, and incorrect entries are also pruned by the regular uploading of these translation memories or translation memory data files. The Trados Translator's Workbench software can be used to open and view the content of these TMW files.

how to open a .tmw file?

Launch a .tmw file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .tmw file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .tmw files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .tmw file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .tmw file will open the correct application.

SDL Trados Studio

SDL Trados Studio

SDL Trados Studio is a translation memory tool that provides translation memory and terminology management. It is a software that displays sources and translates its file type by providing the most extensive file format support available in order for it to be able to open and work on a wide range of projects from the latest Microsoft Office file formats to XML. It features AutosSuggest with sub-segment matching suggestions, RevLex, a translation memory engine that has Contect Match for improved concordance searching. It can make suggestions based on source content for translating in any file format with QuickPlace, and if there is no translation match for a particular segment, it can be automatically translated using Automated Translation. Languages, files and deadlines are located in a centralized location for managing and preparing projects using a customizable project wizard that automatically functions for repeated tasks. The software automatically provides word counts, analysis and reports that are created and stored with the project in order for the users to keep track of their progress, they can also review, accept or decline changes with Track Changes, and a real-time QA will check and highlight possible errors in punctuation, terminology and inconsistencies automatically. The software has a selection of apps and plug-ins available, including SDLXLIFF Converter, which allows reviewing of translations in MS Word. It supports industry standards such as XLIFF for bilingual files, TMX for translation memories and TBX for terminology databases.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .tmw files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .tmw. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
