tmserver(1) a Translation Memory server,


tmserver --bind=HOSTNAME --port=PORT [--tmdb=TMDBFILE] [--import-translation-file=TMFILE [--import-source-lang=SOURCE_LANG] [--import-target-lang=TARGET_LANG]]

Where TMDBFILE is the sqlite database file containing tmdb translation memory data, if not specified a new temporary database is created, and TMFILE is a translation file (po, xliff, etc.) that should be imported into the database (mostly useful when no tmdb file is specified).


tmserver is a Translation Memory service that can be queried via HTTP using a simple REST like URL/http and data is exchanged between server and client encoded in JSON.


-h, --help
show this help message and exit
translation memory database
-f TMFILES, --import-translation-file=TMFILE
translation file to import into the database
-t TARGET_LANG, --import-target-lang=TARGET_LANG
target language of translation files
-s SOURCE_LANG, --import-source-lang=SOURCE_LANG
source language of translation files
-b BIND, --bind=HOSTNAME
address to bind server to
-p PORT, --port=PORT
port to listen on


The easiest way to run the server for testing is to pass it a large translation file (maybe generated by pocompendium) to create a tmdb database on the fly.

tmserver -b localhost -p 8080 -f compendium.po -s en_US -t ar

The server can be queried using a webbrowser. The url would be http://HOST:PORT/tmserver/SOURCE_LANG/TARGET_LANG/unit/STRING

So to see suggestions for "open file" try the url http://localhost:8080/tmserver/en_US/ar/unit/open+file
