downloading existing TM databases
Thread poster: Leipziger1
Aug 11, 2010


earlier i took part in a webinar with SDL support where they suggested that it is possible to stream existing translation memories for languages, so that you would be able to work with a database in a language you do not often translate, in order to save the time and effort of developing your own database.

however a bit of google trawling later and i cannot find anywhere offering such downloads...

so the two questions in a nutshell...

1. is it actually possible to stream / download / buy existing TMs for various languages
2. if so, where?

many thanks!

ps while i would be interested to know the pros/cons (ie reduced contextual accuracy, presumably) of doing this, i am primarily interested in whether it is actually possible and how.

Ready for one million translation units TM? Aug 12, 2010

Take a look to this resource....

I hope your PC is well tuned. Mine choked with the 500K translation units of the EN>ES memory I extracted.
