The Ins and Outs of Translation Memory Maintenance
Translation memory is a vital part of your business’s assets. As your business experiences change and grow, your TM will expand as well. In an ideal situation, it should continuously learn your company’s multilingual content and improve itself to provide you with efficiency, accuracy, and low costs that are necessary for successful globalization. Whereas in reality, it often collects and stores unwanted data.
Like any other database, neglecting to maintain translation memory properly will lead to a variety of problems in the future. This can be avoided by regularly cleaning out the buildup of inaccurate and irrelevant terms, as well as punctuation, style, and other elements that could be improved. This way, you can max out the potential benefits of translation memory reuse and cost savings.
