Hello everyone.

Apologize in advance for may be dumb question, but it emerged and I'm confused.

So: Is it possible to create a working multilingual translation memory in Trados 2014?
That is, which will include one source language and several target languages (example: English - Chinese, Japanese, Lithuanian, and others)

Thank you very much!
Dmitriy

TMs are always bilingual and unidirectional Jul 12, 2016

Dmitriy

This is not possible as a TM is by definition always bilingual (one source and one target language) and also only works in one direction, meaning that if you translate for example from English to Lithuanian as well as from Lithuanian to English, you need two TMs, one En-Lt and one Lt-En.

SDL Trados Studio AnyTM Translation Provider Jul 13, 2016

Hello Walter.

Thank you very much for your response.

I have long been looking for further information on this issue and found application as "SDL Trados Studio AnyTM Translation Provider". This application allows in Projects to recognize different languages, but as I understand, will be recognized segments with any target language (located in the TM), regardless of the chosen target language in the Projects.

AnyTM allows you to use TMs with differing language pairs Jul 14, 2016

Dmitry

AnyTM allows you to assign TMs to a project that have a different language pair as your project. It also allows you to work on multilingual source documents. In this case, you will assign TMs for each of the source languages in the project and Studio will automatically switch to the respective TM depending on the language of the segment.
But this is about multilingual source documents and not about several target languages.

TMs are always bilingual, there is no such thing as a TM with more than one target language. Do not forget that even if your project has several target languages, you only work with one target language at a time when translating in the Editor. When you change the target language, you open the document in another Editor session.
Also keep in mind that the translations into the different languages will usually be done by different people.
