VLTM in Wordfast Pro

From Wordfast Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Wordfast’s public TM server consists of translation units (TUs) offered by the community of translators and aligned data from public institutions (e.g. the European Union) and is available to all users under the name VLTM (Very Large Translation Memory). The TM is unrestricted, anonymous, and free of charge for Wordfast Anywhere users.

Please note that you must have a fully-functional version of Wordfast Pro in order to connect to remote TMs, including the VLTM. You can request a 30-day free trial license for Wordfast Pro from our website.

Free access to coronavirus TMs

Publicly available translation data related to the coronavirus (https://md.taus.net/corona) has been converted into freely accessible TMs in the following language pairs:

  • EN>DE (vltm@πgV9CQy)
  • EN>ES (vltm@πXEHWFY)
  • EN>FR (vltm@πpx4lAo)
  • EN>IT (vltm@πiG35ws)
  • EN>ZH (vltm@πrQUbJ4)
  • DE>EN (vltm@πAvcFy0)
  • ES>EN (vltm@π7XgvX1)
  • FR>EN (vltm@πqaclAO)
  • IT>EN (vltm@πi9CGpw)
  • ZH>EN (vltm@πDdheTB)

The TMs can be accessed via Wordfast Pro using the API codes in parentheses. They can also be accessed directly within Wordfast Anywhere by adding a TM via TMs and glossaries management.
