|Lokalize is the localization tool for KDE and other open source software|
Lokalize is also a general computer-aided translation system (CAT) with which you can translate OpenDocument files (*.odt). Translate-Toolkit is used internally to extract text for translation from .odt to .xliff files and to merge translation back into .odt file.
Lokalize under Windows and OS X

It lacks project management, spellcheck, scripting, and to translate OpenDocument you will need to install and run Translate-Toolkit yourself. If you have interest in Lokalize on non-free platforms, please let me know through reporting issues on bugs.kde.org.
Compiling Lokalize from KDE trunk
Install libkf5i18n-dev, libkf5completion-dev, libkf5itemviews-dev, libkf5sonnet-dev, kross-dev headers packages and libhunspell-dev. Then:
git clone git://anongit.kde.org/lokalize
git clone [email protected]:lokalize
cd lokalize mkdir build cd build cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo .. make -j2 ./src/lokalize

When you want to do another search during the same day, you skip the updating step and just type what you're searching for. You can filter TM search results by filename using the field left side of the F7 panel ( ).
