Tools that Claim TBX Support

This is a list of software claiming TBX support of some kind. It contains links to the software website, a brief description of the extent of its support of TBX, and other information (type, price, etc.). We are currently in the process of validating the TBX output of each of the listed products. The results of the validation will be shown in the final column as it is finished.

The widespread adoption of TBX would be a boon to the translation industry. By sharing a list of software with TBX support, we hope to further encourage its use both in further software development and personal data storage. Using TBX means easy data sharing between each of the products listed here: a non-trivial benefit!

We also hope that by validating the output of each product and posting the results here, we can help software developers improve their products as well as help consumers make smart purchase decisions.

If you know any more products that should be added to this list, or have found any errors here, please send information to Alan K. Melby (akmtrg -at- byu -dot- edu) with “TBX SOFTWARE:” followed by the the appropriate product name or error at the beginning of the subject line.
