I am looking for a Translation Memory software which allows multiple translations of a source segment, not just one.

The TM would suggest you several options, from which you could choose the best suiting one.

Can TRADOS do that?
Does anybody know what do I talk about?icon_smile.gif

Thank you very much for your help!

Multiple translation function in SDL Trados Jan 22, 2009

Hi Marta,
When setting up a new TM in SDL Trados, you need to check the Allow multiple translations for identical source segments option.

HTH, Ralf

Hi Marta,

MemoQ displays multiple results from the TM listed by how close the match is - you can select the one you want and then edit as necessary.

Best,

Karen

Thanks! Jan 22, 2009

Thank you everybody!
Gee, I overlooked that!

Do you know where on the internet could be found some public (freeware) english TM databases with multiple translations?

Thanks once again.

Don't forget that Wordfast already handles multiple translations in its TM.

Of course, it's not free, but you can use it in fully-functional 'trial' mode to see how you get on with it.
