MyMemory is the worlds largest Translation Memory. MyMemory is 100% free.

With the plugin you can get access to MyMemory huge translation memory database and get suggestions from Machine Translation. As an optional feature, you can save your own translations in a private or public TM on Mymemory to share it with your colleagues or clients. FREE!
The SDLTmConvert app allows you to convert your SDLTM files into an XLIFF file for QA and editing in SDL Trados Studio or a XML, CSV or TXT for use in spread sheets, databases and text editors. You can also convert SDLTM files into TMX files for use in older versions of SDL translation software. You can create a new translation memory (TM) from an existing TM which has the original source and target language pair reversed. For example, from an English to Greek TM, a new TM can be created which has Greek as the source language and English as the target language. FREE!
The Glossary Converter app makes it quick and easy to convert spread sheet glossaries into termbases and vice versa. Just simply drag and drop an Excel file onto the app icon and it creates a termbase ready for you to use. The app has recently been updated to work with SDL MultiTerm 2009 and to support Excel files with multiple sheets and text only fields. FREE!
The SDLXLIFF Split/Merge app enables you to split large SDLXLIFF files, work on them individually in SDL Trados Studio and then merge back them together again. You can split the SDLXLIFF file by word count, into numerous equal parts or by segment. FREE!
The SDLXLIFF Compare app is a fast and easy way to compare SDLXLIFF files and display the comparison in an easy to understand report. The user can see exactly what changes have been made between different versions of files to provide a complete audit trail for any translation job. FREE!
The AnyTM Translation Provider app allows you to use any translation memory (TM) as a reference in SDL Trados Studio. You can leverage any file based or server TM, regardless of whether the language pair of the TM matches the language pair that you have selected for your project.
The SDLXLIFF to Legacy Converter makes it even easier to work with Trados legacy files in SDL Trados Studio. You can convert SDLXLIFF files into .doc, docx, ttx or tmx files. Work created in Studio can then be given to users of older Trados tools and imported back into Studio as SDLXLIFF files when they have completed the work.
The SDL MultiTerm Widget provides quick and easy access to terminology and to online content resources. Simply highlight a word from any application on your desktop and retrieve its meaning and translation immediately.
Package Reader allows you to preview your SDL Trados Studio packages directly from Windows Explorer, without having to open Studio. By right clicking on a package this app allows you to instantly see word analysis, job progress statistics, translation memories, termbases and you can even view the contents of SDLXLIFF files.

Have you ever counted the number of clicks necessary to export a SDLTM to TMX? Do you agree that exporting to TMX should be a one click process?

The exported TMX files will be created in the same directory as its originating SDLTM file. FREE!
The SDL TM Management Utility is a compact app for administering file based SDL Trados Studio translation memories (TMs). You can use this app to export SDL Trados Studio TMs to Trados 2007 format, remove duplicate entries and also reverse language pairs to quickly build accurate TMs. FREE!
