Hello GlobalSight

Thanks for the new update.
It is good to know, that from now on it is possible to import and export the settings.
I have one question:
Are the GlobalSight TMs in TMX format?
I was thinking right know about the TMX data volume limitation.
The last time I tried to open a 2 GB TMX with a different software I got an error message.

Best regards!

Hi Alex

GlobalSight TMs can be exported in different formats, from the wiki page:

- G-TMX (GlobalSight native format): Native GlobalSight format and the best choice for importing the TM into another GlobalSight installation. The export is an XML file
- TMX (level 1): exports entries as a TMX level 1 (1.4b) compatible XML file.
- TMX (level 2): Exports entries as a TMX level 2 (1.4b) compatible XML file.
- Trados© TMX: Exports entries as a Trados© compatible XML file. You must choose this option if you wish to use the TM with Trados.

The limitation will depend on the external tool in use, we have not control of that aspect. Though 2GB is very large for a TMX file, would require huge volumes of translation or many years of matches stored in a single TM.

If you need to limit the size of the export, say for a review process, you can export based on individual language or date ranges.

Also, if you have a reviewed TMX you may consider importing it as a reference TM and periodically starting an new storage TM.

e.g. export and review, import as a new signed off translations TM
Client_Storage -> Client_Storage_Reviewed_2016

Add 'Client_Storage_Reviewed_2016' to the TM Profile Reference list

Create new TM and set as storage on the TM Profile page
