MTX, MTX Reference


Formerly known as Mercury (in the US) and Termex (in Europe), MTX (DOS) is the oldest and most widely used terminology management package (DOS). In 1992, LinguaTech introduced MTX Reference, a scaled down version for users who do not need to compile termbases, but only refer to them.

The MTX engine has also been licensed by such publishers as Collins and Larousse for use as retrieval software in their electronic offerings. As a result, the MTX format has become a de facto standard in electronic publishing, although it has never been promoted as such.

MTX is developed by LinguaTech (Provo, Utah) and distributed in Europe by Eurolux. Eurolux also offers termbases in MTX format for various domains and language pairs; these materials have been acquired from a variety of third parties.
