The Translation Repository stores data in an .tmx file. You can maintain more than one repository

by saving multiple .tmx files.


The External Translation Manager lists the satellite assemblies (languages) and resources to be

from a project, they can save these changes in an .bdsproj file, which they return to the developer.

Note: You should not edit any of these files manually.
