DES - DAEH UNACAR Introduction to CAT Tools for Translators What is a CAT Tool?
How many are there?
How do they work? CAT means Computer Aided Translation. A CAT tool is a computer program that helps to translate text documents more efficiently. What is a CAT TOOL? •A CAT tool segments the text to be translated and presents both segments, the original and the translated one, to make translating easier and faster. How do they work? The translation of each segment is saved together with the source text.
Source text and translation will always be treated and presented as a translation unit (TU). •The main function of a CAT tool
is to save the translation units in a database, called Translation Memory (TM) Wordfast Professional (WFP) is a next-generation, standalone TM tool designed for corporations, translation agencies, and translators alike. WFP runs on multiple platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.), and opens a wide variety of formats including complex desktop publishing formats. Wordfast Wordfast Classic (WFC) is a CAT tool designed as a Microsoft Word™ add-on. Its lightweight, flexible structure makes it easy to install and use. It is designed to meet the specific needs of the individual translator and translation workgroups that primarily use Microsoft Word to translate. SDL Trados is a computer assisted translation software suite, originally developed by the German company Trados GmbH and currently available from SDL International, a provider of translation management software, content management and language services. It provides translation memory and terminology management. SDL Trados Wordfast Anywhere (WFA) is an online version that merges Wordfast Classic and Wordfast Pro. WFA is free at this time, and most of its features will remain free. Wordfast Server (WFS) is a corporate solution that can store and serve very large TMs to Wordfast Pro and Wordfast Classic over the internet, or a LAN.
Qualified network administrators/IT personnel will be able to deploy it without assistance. Website for downloading:
