Has anyone used the Snowball translation memory software, from Total Recall ApS? I downloaded a trial, out of curiosity, and looked over the user's guide, but haven't waded into deep into the water yet. It seems so strange--not like your usual CAT tool at all. I can scarcely figure out what it does. I'm wondering whether it's worth bothering with.

Thanks,
Susan

I use it, and i like it. :-) Jan 2, 2010

It is quite different. I suggest you import your current TM and glossaries and then give it a whirl. The cheat sheet http://www.trmem.com/support/cheat-sheet/ that Erich made should help with the commands in snowball.

It's very different from the other tools, I've also used Wordfast, though not Trados, and I'm hooked on snowball. I really like that it can translate term by term which saves me looking up glossaries and style sheets for terms that have to be exactly the same each time. I also can translate by segments and with use, I've noticed that it is getting smarter.
