It might be useful to use Apertium to translate one side of a TMX file. Note: this is different from using a translation memory to aid Apertium in translating.

Although TMX is not a built-in format, translating a TMX file is quite easy with apertium-tmx-tools.

Assuming you have apertium and your language pair installed, this is how you do it:

# Download tmx-tools and enter the downloaded directory:
svn co
cd apertium-tmx-tools

# Translate your input file, e.g. en-es.tmx, from Spanish to Catalan:
./apertium-ftmx es ca <en-es.tmx >en-ca.tmx

# Optionally add a mode, if the TMX source/target language is not equal the translation source/target:
./apertium-ftmx es ca es-ca_valencia <en-es.tmx >en-ca_valencia.tmx
