From the Trados™ Translator's Workbench Help, © 1994-1999, TRADOS GmbH:


“The Translation Memory (TM) is a database which stores source-language sentences together with their target-language equivalents.  A TM learns unobtrusively while the translator works and ensures that no repeated term or phrase has to be keyed in twice.  Cutting-edge technology is used to perform fuzzy searches in this database to give instant reference to text segments already translated.  TM can do even more:  It can manage additional data such as the client of the translation project or the domain in which translation units were created.  These additional data can later be used to distinguish between different subsets of the data stored in the TM.”
