I am trying to write something formal about LSTM Long Short-Term Memory in Spanish, I have:

  • Memoria grande de corto plazo
  • Memoria larga de corto plazo

But it doesn't sound good to me.

    Gran Memoria de Corto Plazo sounds good to me.

  • doesn`t "Gran Memoria a Corto Plazo" sound better?

  • Could it be. What could be the criteria for de vs a ? Aug 27, 2016 at 14:40

I don't know anything about neural networks but in this paper


it is translated as Redes de gran memoria de corto plazo (LSTM) and you can find that on page 3.

I will add a picture of the fragment in case the site decides to change the article or the link becomes invalid.

enter image description here

Redes de gran memoria de corto plazo (LSTM): las redes recurrentes convencionales no pueden memorizar dependencias de largo plazo debido a que los gradientes retropropagados se desvanecen (o crecen sin límite) con el tiempo. Las redes LSTM incorporan una memoria explicita que puede ser actualizada y borrada lo que les permite aprender dependencias de largo plazo en los datos. Actualmente 2015, son muy populares porque son fáciles de entrenar (Vinyals et al. 2015).


I found "memorias de corto a largo plazo" on an article in Wikipedia and "modelo de memorias de largo a corto plazo" on a thesis.

  • I think you're mixing the terms, the question is about a Long size for a short-term memory (Memoria grande a corto plazo) and not about a long and short size memory (Memoria de largo o corto plazo). Saludos Apr 24, 2019 at 17:20

I did not see a translation that I like. I would probable stick to something simple, such as Memoria de largo y corto plazo.

    Bienvenido Juan Manuel. Ten en cuenta que se pregunta por el significado relacionado con redes neuronales en cuyo caso "long" no se refiere a memoria de largo plazo sino al tamaño de la memoria de corto plazo.

  • Wikipedia doesn't have an entry in Spanish for this term, but it does have one in Catalán -- maybe it would be helpful. As far as I can tell the term describes a model used in Artificial Intelligence, not in describing organic cerebral functioning! Apr 24, 2019 at 20:19
