Translation memories

This page contains resources for use in Computer-assisted translation (CAT) software (cf. the English Wikipedia article for an explanation.

We have integrated machine translation support for the CAT program OmegaT. OmegaT is only one of many CAT programs, though. There is a comparison of CAT software available.

Translation memories

We have made translation memories for several language pairs. The collections are in the so-called tmx format, and can be used by all CAT programs listed in the software comparison article quoted above. For easy access we have listed them below (control-click (right-click) on the tmx file you want and download it). The sentence pairs are mainly taken from official documents.
