Anchovy is a multilingual cross-platform glossary editor and term extraction tool based on the open Glossary Markup Language (GlossML) format.

Anchovy is included in Swordfish III installers as free plugin.

Anchovy solves the usual problems associated with glossary data exchange in translation industry: character corruption when using CSV format or extreme complexity when using XML formats intended for terminology management, not glossary exchange.

GlossML is the right choice for storing glossary data. A glossary is a list of terms and their definitions. GlossML allows you to store just that in XML format, without further complications.

Anchovy converts your legacy glossaries from TMX, CSV (Comma Separated Values) or other delimited formats to GlossML and lets you export your files to these formats:

  • CSV: Unicode with user-defined delimiters.
  • HTML: Standard web pages that can be viewed in any browser.
  • TMX: TMX 1.4, for easy import into standard translation memories.
  • TBX: TBX with default XCS definitions.
