Features and Benefits


The TM Workbench supplies the following features and functionality:

Standard TM support:  Use standard SDL Trados (.sdltm) translation memories (TMs) from within RC-WinTrans.

File-based TMs:  Works directly with a single TM file (.sdltm)- no database or server installation required.

Rapid data access/retrieval, even from very large TM databases.

Easy operation:  Straightforward design is easy to install and use- start working with the TM Workbench in just minutes.

Dictionary support:  Works with RC-WinTrans text (.txt) and TMX (.tmx) file dictionaries with the same functionality as offered for SDL Trados TMs (.sdltm).

Translation suggestion:  Automatically supplies translation suggestions while working with RC-WinTrans.

Fuzzy match:  Returns results that only match partially, to increase the likelihood of finding a suitable translation.

Translate items in RC-WinTrans directly with translations found in an SDL Trados TM.
SDL Trados TMs are integrated into RC-WinTrans just like dictionaries, allowing them to be included in dictionary operations.

Colored comparison:  Colored indication of text differences to easily compare an item currently selected in RC-WinTrans to an item found in the SDL Trados TM.

Data exchange:  TBX (terminology) file import; TMX file import and export.

Multi-line texts:  Multi-line support for source and translation texts and for saving multi-line texts to a translation memory.

TM maintenance:  Functionality to maintain the contents of SDL Trados TMs and RC-WinTrans dictionaries.  List all or a selection of the TM's items to show, edit or delete them.

Automatic translation of one or more selected items or an entire RC-WinTrans project.

Access SDL Trados TMs with the Find Translation command in RC-WinTrans.
