The first commercial translation memory application with official support for the Linux platform. The Heartsome Translation Studio is another application, or rather a modular suite of applications, written in Java.

The Heartsome Translation Suite is a mature product in terms of features, having been used internally within the East Asian corporate world. It scores particularly strongly in its support for non-European languages.

Heartsome comprises three modules: a TMX editor, XLIFF editor and Dictionary editor. The term “editor” belies the functionality of these products. The XLIFF editor provides the core translation memory functionality; the “TMX editor” is in fact an alignment tool. A Suite is available comprising all three modules and with the additional facility for sharing translation memories over a network. Pricing information can be found here.
