Want to try it out first? No problem: we give you a week’s free trial to test it and let us know what you think.

When the free week expires, you will pay for what you use: €0.004/word up to a maximum of €89 per month per installation.

Does that mean that you won’t pay more than €89 per month for each installation? Yes!

Invoices will be issued in the first week of each month for the previous month's plugin usage. You can find your invoices in your user area

Please note that the same plugin license key can be used for multiple Trados installations. In this case, you will be billed for each installation (e.g. if you install the plugin on 2 computers, you will pay a maximum of €178/month, i.e. €89 x 2).

Private TM

With the MyMemory plugin, you can create a private translation memory within MyMemory that can only be accessed by you using your private TM key.
