Translator's Workbench stores a pair of an original sentence and a translated sentence one after another in a Translation Memory (TM) so that sentences translated before can be reused to improve translation efficiency.

For example, a pair of an English sentence and a Japanese sentence is automatically stored. When the same English sentence or a similar sentence is encountered, the stored pair is displayed so that the sentence can be reused.

n 1. Compare the original sentence and translated sentence displayed in Workbench.

n 2. Translated sentences are stored as an MS-Word document.
