Hi,

Which translation tools work best with Arabic translations? Please tell me your experiences. Translation tools are quite expensive and I don't want to waste my money.

With regards,
Amin

you don't need to spend your money if you're just starting with Translation tools, you first need to practice.

Translation tools include, monolingual/bilingual glossaries, machine translation tools and overall what's called TM (Translation Memory). I imagine you mean the latters.

You may start practicing with Wordfast, that you can download free of charge in a limited edition.

Even Trados has a freelance trial version.

I personally prefer the first, it's much simpler and is not a software, but just a macro (template) that sticks to your ms word version and does the job. Tutorials are also available.

Good luck wassalam,

Ouadoud
