\\ Technologies :: Formats :: TBX

The goal of the TermBase eXchange format (TBX) is to provide a common format to share glossaries between tools. Because a lot of work had been already done in the terminology exchange area, OSCAR ( the entity responsible for the development of TMX and TBX), has decided to not duplicate efforts and adopt the work of the SALT group.

SALT (Standards-based Access service to multilingual Lexicons and Terminologies) is an initiative based on MARTIF (ISO 12200) and on OLIF.

SALT defines a framework for XML-based formats for Lexicons and Terminologies (XLT). The default XLT format (DXLT) is the same as TBX.
