Open Source Review

Omega T

OmegaT is a free translation memory application written in Java. It is a tool intended for professional translators. It does not translate for you! (Software that does this is called "machine translation", and you will have to look elsewhere for it.) OmegaT has the following features:
  • Fuzzy matching *  | Match propagation  | Simultaneous processing of multiple-file projects
  • Simultaneous use of multiple translation memories  |  User glossaries with recognition of inflected forms
  • Document file formats include:  XHTML and HTML  |  Microsoft Office Open XML (Office 2007/2010: .docx, .xlsx, .pptx)  |  |  XLIFF (Okapi)  |  MediaWiki (Wikipedia) |  Plain text
  • Unicode (UTF-8) support: can be used with non-Latin alphabets  |  Support for right-to-left languages
  • Integral spelling checker  |  Compatible with other translation memory applications (TMX)  |  Interface to Google Translate

System requirements:OmegaT will run on any system on which the JRE (Java Runtime Environment) has been or can be installed. The JRE is now supplied with OmegaT and need not be obtained separately. OmegaT has been successfully installed on Windows (all versions from 98 onwards), Macintosh OS X and Linux.

Files in Microsoft Office XML format can be translated directly in OmegaT. Files in older MS Word, Excel and Powerpoint formats can be translated following conversion to the equivalent current Microsoft Office formats or to (also free). To obtain, follow the link from "Third-party software" button on the left.
