A CAT tool is a translator productivity software that stores bilingual sentences in a translation memory database. When the program detects a similar sentence, it alerts the translator. They can then decide whether to include the suggestion or not. This allows them to work faster, more consistently, and with greater precision.
Benefits of CAT Tools for Translation Buyers
- Consistent use of terminology
- Shorter turnaround times
- Company-specific glossary
- Retain original layout

My main CAT tool, memoQ Translator Pro, is compatible with most other popular CAT tools. It can process documents in a range of formats, even PDF files.
