If you are into the habit of using extremely large TMs why not use a server based solution that you set up once and connect to CafeTran? There are several possibilities:
TAUS: Data Upload, to make your translation memories searchable in TAUS Search.

Yes, a serious possibility Jul 8, 2012

Hello Hans,

yes, in fact, after considering speed problems this would be the best idea. Large public online bases like the implemented MyMemory do just that and I can say that this solution helps me in some specific cases where exact file and topic references are given. Also this solution seems confidential because it doens't store my queries, but I'll have to check this carefully before making extended use of it.

Google Translate, or other online solutions of this type (wether it helps or not) is a no go for me: Confidentiallity is crucial in my job.
