What is the best software for splitting a tab-delimited .txt file?

What is the best software for splitting a large tab-delimited .txt file on 7,496 KB?

It contains Chinese characters and Latin letters (a dictionary on 100,000 words).

After splitting and open in my CAT-tool (Computer-Assisted Translation), I will translate the two splitted parts, and when finished I need to save as tab-delimited .txt again and finally put the two halves together again.

Which of these alternatives would be best?: Adsen File Splitter, HJSplit, WhitSoft Filesplitter.

I have Windows XP Pro SP3 32-bit.

You may try Excel 2007 or 2010. It has feature to convert tab delimited text into columns.

Thanks for the suggestions, but I have already had the file in Excel-format, than I needed to convert it to tab-delimited .txt and finally open that tab-delimited .txt in my CAT-tool (doesn't work with the Excel-format).

HJsplit is a very intuitive program to split and rejoin files.  I find it easy to use and you can't beat the price.  Highly recommended.  Hope this helps.

Thanks, I think this was the one I tried earlier (haven't tried the other two yet), seemed very simple to use, liked it.

I would use Perl.  It was designed for file manipulation.
