Import Translation Memory (TM)

In the past, you may have relied on translation vendors or used a different tool to translate your documents. If you want to import these translations to Redokun, you can try to do so by following these steps.

Import a TMX file

💡 The Translation Memory eXchange (TMX) format is an exchange format that standardizes the presentation of translation memories, which renders the content exchangeable between different tools or translators.

The best way to import your past translations is to use a TMX file. You can request the TMX file from your translation vendors, or export it from any professional translation software you were using before.

Once you have the file, you can head over to Redokun and:

  1. Click on Translation Memory in the top bar.
  2. Click on Upload TM.
  3. Click on Choose File and select the file you want to import.
  4. Check that source and target languages are filled in correctly, and click on Import records.

When you import a TMX file to Redokun, the software removes duplicates and cleans up non-translatable segments such as currencies, numbers, etc.

Import TM using our template

Companies that have just started using Redokun would often already have some documents they had used to translate their content previously. These usually come in the form of a table in a spreadsheet or a word document. If this is your case too, you can import these translations using our template.

  1. Click on Translation Memory in the top bar.
  2. Click on Upload TM.
  3. Download the Excel template.
  4. Fill up the template following this structure:
    • Column A: The segments in the source language
    • Column B: The translations of said segments in the target language
  5. Click on Choose File and select the file you just filled up.
  6. Indicate the Source Language and Target Language,
  7. Click on Import records to confirm.

Are you experiencing an issue when importing the template?

Keep in mind the following rules:

  • The file is expected to have a header so the first row is skipped during the import.
  • The file should have two columns. The first column containing the text segment in the source language and the second containing the text segment in the target language.

Delete imported TM

You can delete the TM files you uploaded if needed. For instance, you may want to upload an updated version of a TM file. In that case:

  1. Click on Translation Memory in the top bar.
  2. Find the TM you want to delete and click on its Delete icon.
