Store your existing translation memory in Cloudwords so that you can continue to build your translation assets, increase their consistency, and reduce costs in future projects.
If you do not have your translation memory files, request them from the last localization service provider or translation company you hired. If they do not have them, you will be able to build your own translation memory at Cloudwords over time. Fortunately, you will be able to download it any time.
To upload your translation memory file(s) into Cloudwords:
- Login to your Cloudwords account.
- Click on the OneTM tab. You must be an administrator in order to have access to it.
- At the Translation Memory settings page, click on "Upload New Translation Memory".
- On the popup window that appears, select the translation memory file (a valid TMX format file) that you want to upload.
- Once you have selected the file, if your account has been divided into departments, you will be given the option to associate the translation memory being uploaded to a specific department. If you don't associate it with any department, the uploaded translation memory will be considered as applicable to your whole company.
- Click Upload
Important: Cloudwords has established a code validation policy to make sure that Translation memory files being uploaded are correctly formed and language codes comply with the most usual standards. In case you see an error notification when uploading your translation memory, the code validation policy page will help you understand what might have happened, and how to fix it.
As you complete translation projects on Cloudwords, the vendors who worked on your translations must upload the specific translation memory in order to properly finish the project, and all newly updated translation memory files are added to your account automatically. This way, your translation memory is always up-to-date and contains all of your translations.
