Once the project has been signed off and delivered, a CAT tool is used to import all translated content into your dedicated translation memory ready for use on the next project.
When working on a new project, the TM will also be applied during the preparation stage whereby the source format is transferred into a translation friendly version. The CAT tool will work with the translation memory to compare and identify any matches to previously translated content. During the translation stage the translator then inserts this pre-existing translation into the document and reviews in context, making edits if necessary.
