Software & Hardware, including TM and CAT programs :
Explanation: A translation memory is in its simplest form a database where a translator may record (usually semi-automatically) old translations for future reuse and easy searches. Although these programs are best classified under computer-aided/assisted translation, one must not confuse them with machine translation programs - translation memory software does not translate anything by itself, whereas a machine translation system actively produces language and translations based on linguistic data, such as grammatical rules and glossaries. A translation memory system leaves all the actual translating to the human translator
