Today, Meedan, is releasing the first publicly available open licensed Arabic/English Translation Memory (TM). This release comes as a part of Meedan's ongoing commitment to improving the state of Arabic language machine processing research and supporting translators and machine translation researchers.

The new translation memory, called MeedanMemory, contains around one million words in aligned Arabic and English sentence pairs. It constitutes an invaluable resource for translation professionals, Arabic linguistic researchers, academics and volunteer communities, and is the first translation memory of such size and sophistication to be released under an open access license.
