OmegaT is a free translation memory application written in Java. It is a tool intended for professional translators. OmegaT does not translate for you! (Software that does this is called "machine translation", and you will have to look elsewhere for it.)

Here are some key features of "OmegaT":
Fuzzy matching
Match propagation
Simultaneous processing of multiple-file projects
Simultaneous use of multiple translation memories
External glossaries
Document file formats: plain text, HTML, (the latter has excellent conversion filters for MS Word, Excel, RTF)
Unicode (UTF-8) support: can be used with non-Latin alphabets
Compatible with other translation memory applications (TMX Level 1)
