11. Scripting Felix

Most of the application’s features can be scripted using Visual Basic (VB), Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), and other COM-aware languages (including C++). This makes Felix a flexible and powerful tool. You can build your own custom scripts to automatically perform various tasks, pre-process documents, and more.

11.1. About the Felix COM API

Felix is scriptable, which means that it can be controlled programmatically using scripting languages like Visual Basic and Python.

This is useful because it makes it possible to customize the behavior of Felix, and to automate repetitive tasks. You can use automation to look up sentences, retrieve results, load and save translation memories and glossaries, change the size and focus of the Felix memory and glossary windows, and more.
