What is QM file?

A .QM file, also known as the QT message file is a compiled binary data file that contains source text and translation text of another language. QM file is created by the Qt Linguist software and each of the QM file contains a source text associated with each translation source (.TS) file. Further, the QM file is referenced by the software for performing fast lookup when translating the source text. The software compiles the translation source (.TS) file associated with the Qt project file (.PRO file) by running the lrelease command-line interface. 

Programs that support QM file

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the QM file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the QM file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the QM file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the QM file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the QM file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the QM file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
