There is some confusion in understanding of what translation memory is and what it is not. Translation Memory, or TM, is a database that stores segments that have been previously translated by a linguist, and not by machines or other artificial methods. A translation-memory system stores the words, phrases and paragraphs that have already been translated and aid human translators.
The primary advantages of TM are that it has the ability to allow human translators to translate documents at faster pace. Also, this allows translators and editors to work with pre-established phrases and sentences to ensure consistency in output. This is especially important when a team of translators and editors work a project or set of documents together. American language Services utilizes the most highly technical and state-of the-art systems on the market today.
The translation memory stores the source text and its corresponding translation in language pairs called “translation units”. Some software programs that use translation memories are known as translation memory managers (TMM). Translation memories are typically used in conjunction with a dedicated computer assisted translation (CAT) tool, word processing programs, terminology management systems and multilingual dictionaries.
A translation memory consists of text segments in a source language and their translations into one or more target languages. These segments can be blocks, paragraphs, sentences, or phrases. Individual words are handled by terminology bases and are not within the domain of TM.
Glossary of Terms:
American Language Services secures and maintains a detailed glossary list for companies and for their specific projects. An alphabetical list of words and their meanings or approved translations (glosses) in their various contexts are utilized on future projects to ensure consistency. This applies to standard and technical translations as well as for web site and localization.
In the translation/localization industry, it may refer simply to a bilingual or multilingual terminology list and is often confounded with dictionary. Especially valuable are term lists that are suited to machine searches with glossary tools like lingo Translators Assistant, Avalon Glossary Glossaries and others. Projects that are Web based vary from long static HTML web pages to database-backed dynamic sites that present the results of a term search.
