Use of Specific Tools in the Translation Industry


CAT (Computer-assisted Translation) tools:

  • CafeTran Espresso (primary);

  • XTM, MemoQ 9.1 licence is to be provided by client;

  • Tested or previously used CAT tools: Fluency Now, SDL Trados Studio 2011, Déjà Vu X2, Translation Workspace;

  • Online: WordFast Anywhere, Memsource Cloud, Matecat, and SmartCAT.


PDF-handling software:

  • FlexiPDF 2019 capable of editing complex PDF files. Such files usually constitute user's manuals and advertising brochures. In addition to directly editing this type of files, it allows to extract the text for translation, and then the translated text is imported into a copy of the file, preserving the layout. This method renders better results compared to the standard process of OCR (optical character recognition) and automatic conversion to Word and Excel file formats. It is better in respect of user's manuals, technical brochures, advertising materials, etc.

  • PDF Transformer Pro 2.0 for converting PDF files into Word, Excel, HTML or .txt format (OCR).


Other pieces of software: licensed copies of Microsoft 8.1 (64-bit) and Microsoft Office Home & Business 2010.
