Hello!

I am an interpreter who's recently started to take small translations projects which i was working on using CafeTran in my MacBook Pro, however while traveling i do not pack my MacBook because its a very heavy (older) version and would love to know if there are any CAT tools that I can use on my iPad while away. So far, i have been looking for apps with no luck so would appreciate any information regarding the matter!

Thank you all!

Any browser-based online CAT tool should do Apr 3

memsource, wordbee, wordfast anywhere etc. Michael Beijer made a list of these:

And dictation software as well Apr 3

It's been shown that typing on a hard flat surface is bad for your fingers in the long term. If you value your hands, you will:

a) Connect a regular keyboard to your iPad, or
b) Get a laptop to work properly

iPads are toys. Unless you're in other industries or markets (hospitality, health care, inventory control, customer service, taxi driving, cable TV installation or repair, and more), tablets are not designed for desktop work, no matter what others say.

I almost forgot: if you use dictation software on your iPad, maybe, just maybe you can do without a keyboard.

I have more than 26 years of experience as a translator and I've used all sorts of hardware, keyboards and mice to do my work. And I'm writing this on a sturdy Dell full keyboard, using a large mouse, on a browser on my 15-inch MacBook Pro. Note: I'm traveling; I have better equipment at home.

Cheers!

Connect My Mac Apr 4

More than 5 years ago, I tried Connect My Mac, in other words, use your Mac at home on your iPad.



Cheers,

Hans

Wow, an iPad Pro ... congratulations!

I think no computer is lighter than an iPad Pro indeed:

I came up with two different approaches:

  • On your MacBook Pro you use CafeTran to create a bilingual review table, that you can translate on your iPad Pro (e.g. with Word for iOS).
  • On your iPad Pro you install TeamViewer for iOS and you use this to log on to your MacBook Pro at home, running CafeTran. (I'm happy to explore this scenario, since I find it interesting too.)

TOPIC STARTER
Trying Wordfast Apr 21

Hello everyone. Thanks for the suggestions. I'm currently trying out Wordfast in their web based version which you are able to acces from the iPad (even from the iPhone) and I have to say I truly appreciate the ease of being able to work on docs both from iPad and laptop without doing anything more than just logging in. I am however having problems with the TM and creation of glosaries when using the iPad, not sure if it's my account or that the iPad interface won't allow for editing of these.

I'll keep looking for other alternatives and keep everyone posted!
