OmegaT is a free translation memory application written in Java. It is a tool intended for professional translators. It does not translate for you! (Software that does this is called "machine translation", and you will have to look elsewhere for it.)
OmegaT is available in many different versions in order to suit a range of user requirements.
To find the version most suitable for you, follow the link below to the Download Selector.

The perfect companion for those of us who don't need complexity but efficiency; glossaries, auto-complete and automatic translation makes my work in literary translation so much efficientDiego Merino - Translator EN > ES

I've been using OmegaT as a professional translator for over 10 years, benefiting in the early days from its ease of use and extremely helpful forum. A vast range of functions, an uncluttered interface, and, most importantly, constant, regular open-source development!Robert Corner, Institut Laue-Langevin, France
OmegaT isn't just a product; it's an exciting project, and you can be part of it.
OmegaT is free software. That means that users like you are free to download and use it with very little in the way of restrictions. You are also free to copy it and pass it on to other people.
OmegaT is open-source software. That means that if you feel so inclined, you may modify OmegaT to suit your own requirements. For advocates of open-source software, this freedom is even more important than the exemption from having to pay anything.
The OmegaT project would benefit from greater support from volunteers in almost all areas. Although many users are aware of this, their reaction is often "But I can't program!". Programming is certainly the most important function, and without programming, there is no program. But programming isn't the only job needing to be done. Below is a list of areas for which further volunteers would be more than welcome!
Documentation is very important. Many of you reading this will be translators who have translated a lot of user documentation. Have you considered writing some user documentation yourself? It's a real eye-opener!
Thanks to the work of translators in the past, OmegaT's user interface and/or Help texts have been translated into several languages. That means there are only a few thousand left! Localizing OmegaT into other languages is also an ongoing task, since new features and functions are being added all the time. See the Localizing OmegaT HowTo for details of what is involved in localizing/translating OmegaT.
One of the most useful things OmegaT users can do is... to use OmegaT. And when they find things that don't work, or deficiencies in the documentation, to tell us about them.
Have you ever written an article for your professional association's journal? If not, why not write an article on using OmegaT?
