Translation Memory (TM) is a database of the source strings and their corresponding translations into different languages that can speed up the translation of the same or similar strings in your projects. The project TM is created automatically for each project. Every translation made in the project is automatically added to the project TM.

Creating TM

Besides the project TMs that are automatically created with the respective projects, you can also create separate TMs, fill them with the appropriate content by uploading your existing TMs in TMX, XLSX, or CSV format, and then assign these TMs to the needed projects.

  1. Open your organization Workspace and select Translation memories on the left.
  2. At the bottom right, click add.

Prioritizing TM

When you assigned a few TMs to the project, you can set the needed priority for each of them. As a result, TM suggestions from the TM with the higher priority will be displayed in the first place.

The default TM priority value is set to 1. A higher number has a higher priority (for example, 5 has a higher priority than 1). For example, if you assigned four TMs to your project, you can set the priority of 4 to the most important TM, the one that should be used in the first place. And respectively set the lower priorities to other TMs.

To set the priority for TMs, follow these steps:

  1. Open your project and go to Resources > Translation memories.
  2. In the Priority column, set the preferred priority for assigned TMs.

TM Match Calculation

Crowdin Enterprise calculates the TM match by comparing the source string to be translated and TM’s existing segments.

There are three main types of TM matches:

  • Perfect Match - TM segment’s text and context completely matches the source string
  • 100% Match - TM segment’s text matches the source string, but the context is different
  • Fuzzy Match (99% and less) - TM segment’s text is different to a certain extent compared to the source string

If the Perfect and 100% TM match calculation is relatively straightforward, the fuzzy matches’ calculation may not be so obvious.

There are multiple different factors that affect the calculation of fuzzy matches, for example:

  • Word order
  • Punctuation
  • Formatting tags
  • Matches that are longer than the source string
