wordfast comes with an empty memory Jan 30, 2009

Wordfast has an empty memory. As you save your translations in it, you will be able to have a reference for your fiture tranlations.

I know of no place where you can buy TMs. You can create TMs using "alignment" (read the PlusTools user manual and use PlusTools for that... available from the Wordfast web site. Or you can ask other translators if they'd be willing to share/swap TMs with you.

I suspect VLTM is for hackers -- I haven't been able to get it up and running either, and I'm a registered user.

I did'nt try, but as far as I know, it's not yet running on Windows Vista.
