Translation Memory

Translation Memory is part of our Pro plan and higher.

The translation memory remembers translations used in your projects and suggests matching results while translating content. This speeds up the translation process and improves consistency across texts and projects.

Configuration

First, choose which projects may use the account-wide translation memory. If none of your projects share a translation memory, each project will rely on its own local translation memory.

  1. Go to “All Projects”
  2. Go to “Translation Memory”
  3. Select the projects you want to use in the account-wide translation memory. You can also enable translation memory sharing for each project individually in the project settings.

There is no need to update the translation memory, it is refreshed automatically with every new translation.

Usage

When you’re in the translation editor, the number of suggestions will be shown next to each translation:

Choose a suggestion that fits and click on “Apply” to use it.

Locale matching

The translation memory will only suggest translations matching the current locale codes.

Imagine you have three locales in your project:

Locale name                                                      
English                                                                
Locale code

en

Locale name
German
Locale code                                                            
de

Locale name
German-New  
Locale code
de

Both German locales will be used to find suggestions when translating from ‘English’ to ‘German’. The translation memory will even find suggestions when the source strings don’t match exactly. The similarity is then displayed as a progress bar next to each suggestion.
