MyMemory: integration with CAT tools

Next generation CAT tools will connect to huge, shared on-line translation memories

Imagine a CAT tool connected via the internet to an enormous, centralized translation memory containing every professionally translated sentence in the world.

For each new segment to translate, you would be presented with the optimum match from hundreds of millions of segments. With a single key stroke, you could find translations and contextualized examples for specialist terminology from any field.

The MyMemory Application Programming Interface realizes this possibility by allowing CAT tools to connect to MyMemory (via a web service) as simply as if it were an ordinary local translation memory.

Are you a CAT tool producer? Partner to build MyMemory into your next release

We are looking for partners committed to implementing full-feature MyMemory support as part of their next release. The objectives of partnership are to supply our 20,000 registered translators with 'web-memory' CAT tools, and to promote web-enabled tools in the wider CAT market.

Here is how to start:

  1. You can implement a prototype MyMemory get/match call in minutes: direct your technical team to the API technical specifications.
  2. Contact to find out how we can co-operate.

MyMemory-CAT integration means: a huge increase in high-quality matches, fast and accurate verification of specialist terminology and consolidation of disaggregated local memories into a single searchable knowledge base.

You can help us realize this vision sooner by communicating the importance of this project to your preferred CAT tool producers. Contact details for the major providers and a template email are provided below:
