Translation Memory (TM)

Consistency and accuracy are key in any content – but this can become tricky once it gets translated! This is where Translation Memories (TM) come in.

What is a translation memory (TM)?

A translation memory is a language database, individually designed for each client. It searches in all your previous projects, to identify segments that feature again in the current one. The more often it's being applied, the more efficient the technology becomes – ensuring coherent usage of the same terminology. Processes are streamlined, costs and turnaround times reduced.

More efficiency

Reuse of reoccurring terms and segments reduces manual work and saves time.

Better quality

Coherence in the use of terms and messages is key for any brand!

Less cost

You don't pay for previously translated content again in any future project.

Does a translation memory (TM) make sense for your projects?

A TM makes sense for most business cases, as most industries have a specific wording – and so should your organization: It's part of your brand identity, and consistent usage is crucial across any content, any messaging. Other than that, TMs are ideal for large translation volumes and repetitive content such as e-commerce product sheets, user manuals, app interfaces etc.
