Q: What is the main difference between a software localization tool and a TM (translation memory) based translation environment like MemoQ or Trados Studio?

A: Software localization tools identify texts by unique string identifiers. TM based tools are better suited to translate flowing texts. These tools look-up the translation for a certain source text in a TM and also take the previous and/or next segment into account. That approach does not work for software, because software strings are short and the same source text can have different meanings.
