Dear all,

I am writing my final paper on CAT Tools and machine translation. I have prepared a survey for getting some insights from professional translators. Your contribution would be extremely appreciated!

Here is the link:

Many many thanks!

Elina Lagoudaki did a survey in 2006, that has something in common with yours, but on TM only, not MT. The dissertation is available as a PDF file:

Hello Luciana,
I've completed your survey. However, I would add some more options for your question "Do you think that the gap between machine translation and CAT Tools will be reduced in the future?"

I believe that the two options "Absolutely" and "Not at all" are quite a narrow choice. Adding "Somewhat" would be useful, IMO.
