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 so they can decide whether to include the suggestion or not. This allows me to work faster and more accurately.
Advantages of Using CAT Tools
- Consistent use of terminology
- Shorter turnaround times
- Company-specific glossary
- Retain original layout
CAT Tools Experience
Besides memoQ, I have hands-on experience with several other CAT tools and software localization tools such as SDL Passolo.
Supported File Formats
My main CAT tool, memoQ, is compatible with most other commonly used CAT tools. It can process documents in a range of formats, even PDF files.
