CAT Tools Consultancy and Solutions
Despite being often referred to as ‘CAT tools for translation’, these tools don’t directly do any translation work, they still require a translation expert for users to make the most of them. However, they can be very useful and advantageous for businesses who have them, providing they are being used by those with the right expertise. This is where our CAT tools consultancy and solutions can help.
What are CAT tools (for translation)?
CAT – or ‘Computer-Assisted Translation’ tools – are software programs that can be used to support a translation process. They have been around for a while now and come in varying packages and levels of sophistication.
Today they are often considered to be an essential part of translation, especially for commercial purposes, as if used correctly they can increase efficiency with the translation of a variety of content. Typically, they involve an interface which allows the user to input a source language that the software then segments into sentences or words for the translator to then translate.
These translations then get saved in the software’s ‘translation memory’ to produce something similar to a glossary of terms, which can then be used at a later stage. Depending on the functionality of the software, the CAT tool will then revert the content back to its original order for both the source language and the newly translated language.
