NEW [Machine Translation] Editor now shows the MT system used for translating each segment.

Hovering over the MT icon of a machine translated text will show the MT connector used for the translation of the respective segment.

This information is further visible in the revision history with MT translated texts and a few more places:
- the word count popup of a document/job;

- the Codyt job work progress tool-tip.

FIX [Resources] TMX file import error

To be able to import a TMX file created in another system successfully into Wordbee Translator, the TMX import/export format specifications need to be the same.
