Translation Memory is a big file that contains all translation work entered in it by a human translator or a group of translators. It works as follows. When translating a specific term, the translator first looks up the contents of an existing translation memory file (if any) and, if appropriate translation precedents are found, makes sure to use the same translation term. For example, when translating the German 'Wagen' into English, you may use 'car', 'vehicle' or 'automobile'. If there is an appropriate precedent of translating the term in the translation memory, you can figure out what particular word to use. Moreover, entire sentences from a translation memory may be reused by translators, with or without modifications. In many real-life situations, documents and their translation counterparts go through a lifecycle of modifications. Some sentences of the source text may remain unchanged, and some may undergo just slight changes. Having a translation memory file would help maintain uniformity of the translation and increase productivity. If no appropriate precedents are found in the translation memory, the translator adds the new source segment (term or sentence) and its translation to the memory file. A translation memory may exist in various formats, including plain text and other application-specific representations. Maxim are experts at managing translation memory data and creating such files for you from your legacy translation projects.

Glossary - We import your Glossary into our Translation Memory system, and then strictly follow it. Or we can build a glossary of terms at your request based on the translation content.

SDL Trados is a popular software product that integrates with MS Word and can be used for working with a translation memory.
