Translation memory (TM) is a concept used in the field of translation that refers to a database that stores translations for future use. TM technology allows for the efficient and accurate translation of content by storing previously translated material so that it can be leveraged in future projects.
Translation memory management is the process of managing and maintaining TM databases to ensure accuracy and efficiency in the translation process. This involves organizing and updating translations, selecting the appropriate translation memory software, and training translators to use the system effectively.
There are several methods to create a translation memory, but the most common way is through the use of a computer-assisted translation (CAT) tool. CAT tools like SDL Trados, MemoQ, and Smartcat have built-in translation memory software that allows users to create and store translations for future use. To create a translation memory, you need to import previously translated content, segment it into smaller parts, and store it in the CAT tool's translation memory database.
Translation memory works by breaking down source text into smaller segments, typically sentences or phrases, and storing them in a database. When a new document is being translated, the CAT tool compares the source text segments to those stored in the translation memory database. If there is a match, the tool will suggest the previously translated content, which can then be used by the translator to speed up the translation process and ensure consistency across projects.
Smartcat is one of the best free CAT tools available, providing access to the largest marketplace of professional linguists and seamless project management tools. Smartcat's translation memory software is easy to use and allows users to create, store, and manage translation memories efficiently.
