Swordfish Databases Jun 5, 2014

Dear Norwegian Light,

Swordfish can create its own internal databases or it can use one of the following DBMS: Oracle, MySQL 5.x, or SQLServer. I would recommend the use of internal databases if the number of segments is not that great.

The database is where the translation memory will be stored. A translation memory is where the translations will be stored.

You can find out additional information on their website:

and (How to Setup Databases)

Best regards,
