Savings from translation memory for top-100 users in Memsource, sample size 516 million words. (png visualisation)
For our second Translation Big Data study, we’ve investigated how owning translation memory increases productivity and saves money.
The table above applies a predefined net rate scheme to a sample of 500+ million words. It clearly shows that Memsource’s most active users increase their productivity by an average of 36% by using translation memory. This means that if you had an average cost of 10 euro cents per word, for this volume you could save €18.6 million. Not bad!
