In this paper, two Translation Memory (TM) sharing models adopted in XMCAT, a Computer Assisted Translation tool (CAT) supporting cooperated work in machine translation, was described in detail. One is Center-based TM sharing model, which is only fit for users in a local area network (LAN) and the other is a novel model called P2P-based TM sharing model, which could be used through Internet by geographically distributed users. With the two TM sharing models, a user may share data with other users through network, so that he/she may reduce the repeated work further and cooperate with others more easily. Besides, the methods used in XMCA T to deal with the problem of multi-translations arose in the cooperated memory sharing models, were also proposed in this paper. XMCAT system has been adopted and approved by some translation companies.
