Translation Memory (TM) systems enable translations to be stored in databases. They then retrieve previously translated content for use in subsequent translations.
Any recurring text passages that have been translated before are recognised by the system and the translation is automatically inserted.
Translation Memory systems can be an excellent means of improving consistency, particularly in the field of medical technology (ensuring that the same word is always translated the same way), while also cutting your costs. However, the foreign-language content of these systems is only as good as the people who input it (translators, revisers, terminologists); after all, it is they who create it, and not the computer.
Translation Memory (TM) systems should not be confused with machine translation (MT) systems. The latter automatically generate translations using artificial intelligence, but as yet cannot produce translations of acceptable quality and are therefore unsuitable for complex medical content.
medDOC® employs the latest Translation Memory systems to meet its customers' requirements. The price of the translation includes the use and maintenance of databases:
