What is a TM match? Let’s take broken sword as an example in this old school point and click adventure just like in other old adventure games, you had to find the right item from your inventory and combine it with another item in your inventory or with a place in the map or the puzzle that you are trying to solve. And in a way, this is what a TM match means. Software is basically trying to find a match between the string that we’re translating and the translations and the strings that were translated before and that we have already in the translation memory.
