Computer-Assisted Translation (CAT) Tools in Practice

Watch Tabea De Wille introduce CAT Tools and how they can help a localization project team.

Computer-assisted translation (CAT) tools are essentially translation editors with functionality for referring to or retrieving previously translated content.

CAT tools are associated with improving the quality of translations, saving money in the form of identifying what actually needs to be translated, and helping manage complex processes.

They are associated with machine translation in that they help train machine translation engines, which in turn helps translators, or in some cases allows for machine translation services to conduct the translations themselves.
