Soon, More Choice in Translation Memory

July 15th, 2008 | by Naomi de Moraes

The folks over at the Global Watchtower (a blog about the translation industry) provide consulting services to the Language industry and the large companies that contract language services.

A recent post caught my attention. It discusses alternatives to conventional TM solutions that most of us have never even heard of. An excerpt:

“What are the alternatives? Some companies have sidestepped traditional TM solutions by developing their own tools, while others have integrated products from companies like Kilgray and XML Intl. However, we’ve been advocating a different model for translation memory — free or very nearly free. We’ve long suggested a US$99 price point, more recently defined a free gmail-like offering, and have often recommended open source. The US$99 special threatens Atril’s or SDL’s commercial business, Lingotek offers free use up to a point, Across has a free Personal Edition, and LSPs like Elanex and Lionbridge to date have come forth with gmail-like products, but only their employees and subcontractors can use them.”
