Pre-existing translation memories

I recently downloaded omega t.

It seems like it won't be much use until I have a nice batch of Translation Memories.

Is there anywhere on the web where I might find populated translation memories for download?

Specifically PT>EN

Many thanks

You make them in the course of your work Oct 11, 2012

Any TMs you would get online from other people's work would be of limited usefulness to you in yours. The main point of TMs is to allow you to access repetitive material that you have previously translated. The main way that people do this is by ... working and thereby creating TMs. If you do not do much repetitive work (I don't), they are not of much use, except as a look-up tool for vocabulary that you may not have put into your glossary. For that purpose, I file them by language pair and client.

That said, you could check the EU's TM of its legislation, which is in all EU languages:

I've never used it.

Good luck,

PS: TMs are not the only good reason to use CAT tools like OmegaT, as you'll see after you use it for awhile.
