What is the Latin word for “software”?
“Programmatura”, “corpus programmatum” and “mollopus” were suggested on Vicipaedia.

This document titled "Vocabula computatralia", apparently compiled by Konrad Kokoszkiewicz, provides some suggestions for computer-related jargon.
For "software" it directs to "program" and gives programma, atis n.
Not sure to what extent we can speak about "correct translation". A new word usually settled by the speaking/users community. Programma computatrale is used by Vicipedia for computer program ("breviter programma"), can vouch for this selection.
Now, there appear to be some distinction between "software" and "computer program"; "software" being a more general term. A software, so it appears, contains computer program and other things. So as @jk - Reinstate Monica mentioned in a comment, it might be rendered as Corpus programmatum. But, it really depands what one means by software, which I believe many mean "computer program". At any case, I would vote to have programma for both "software" and "computer program"; for the later one might want to distinct by adding computatrale.
It should be noted that the Latin programma is a word that was used long before the emergence of those green boards.
