TBX

Parent Previous Next

TermBase eXchange format is a standard format to exchange terminology data. Glossary Converter does not support all the details of the standard, but it seems to do the job for the basics. If you run into problems, or would like support for other formats, please contact support at glossary@cerebus.de.


Version 3.2 made some improvements. A new parser can handle larger files, without running out of memory like earlier versions.

From version 3.3 there is also a improved coverage of finding fields in TBX and assigning them to the correct MultiTerm level. It's impossible to represent the layers of complexity the TBX defines for fields in other formats, so you'll never get a lossless conversion.


TBX files usually have the extension tbx, but sometimes also just xml. Since this could clash with the mtf.xml export files of MultiTerm, Glossary Converter automatically detects which type an xml file is.


See Known Issues for differences between TBX and MultiTerm language codes, and for size limits in general.
