This video shows how to convert files in the SDLTM (translation memories used by SDL Trados Studio) and SDLTB (term bases created by SDL MultiTerm) formats to TMX (for translation memories) and CSV (for termbases), without having to use SDL Trados Studio or SDL MultiTerm. The converter (WfConverter) is written by Jean-Philippe Odent and it can be downloaded from the Wordfast site. It also converts Wordfast translation memories to TMX, and vice-versa.
A third-party DLL (not included with the converter) must be copied to the same folder as WfConverter.exe, unless SQLite is already installed on your computer.
WfConverter is an alternative to Thomas van Nellen’s script for SDLTM files and to Gerhard Kordmann’s GlossaryConverter for SDLTB files. Because it is a compiled program, WfConverter is much faster than the script. Unlike GlossaryConverter, it works even if MultiTerm is not installed on your computer.
