From the Mindjet MindManager application, choose File > Save As… and save your mindmap file in the MindManager Map (XML) format.

If you open .xmmap file in a text editor, you will see that the translatable parts are identified in the attribute: PlainText.

To translate the .xmmap in Wordfast Pro, you first need to create a very simple two-line *.properties file (click here to download it)


Next, you’ll need to create a text-based filter that so Wordfast Pro will recognize the .xmmap extension and use the *.properties file rules to extract the proper content.

Wordfast Pro 3

To open the .xmmap file in Wordfast Pro, go to Edit menu > Preferences > Formats > New > Text-based Filter.

Click the [...] button to locate the (*.properties) file. Make sure the "Extension" textbox shows *.xmmap and save the settings (OK).

Now, you should be able to open the .xmmap file in WFP (File menu > Open file).

After translating and saving the file back to its native .xmmap format, open the translated .xmmap file in Mindjet MindManager.
