Customized Translation Memory

Translation memory (TM) allows previously translated, edited, and proofread by qualified human linguists to be stored and leveraged for all future projects. TM technology dramatically reduces translation costs by leveraging previously translated content, the typical TM savings in year 1 are 20-25%, with the savings growing up to 50% in years 2, 3 and beyond. TM continues to grow with each and every application translated. It also helps to expedite turnaround times since linguists are not required to retranslate content that is already stored in TM. Most importantly, utilizing TM vastly improves consistency across a family of patents.
