Hello,

I have received a bunch of 19 word files for translation. Each file contains an average of 3000 words. I have employed a team of translators working remotely on this project. The trados log sheet shows that all 19 files have a repetition of 19000 words. Now, i would like to know how can i make use of a CAT tool to have an access by all. Is there a way that i create an online TM in SDL and all my coworkers make use of it for repetitions and fuzzy matches. It will also enable us to maintain the consistency throughout the project. I have heard of XTM cloud but never tried it.

Please also enlighten the same in reagrds to making the glossary or termbase online.

Many thanks in advance!

For SDL Trados you would have to buy the server version - not worthwile I think.
OmegaT (the latest version of this open source CAT) is capable of handling online projects - but I don't know the tech details, and it can handle the docx format.
Worfast Anywhere is a free online tool where you can share TM and glossary, should be OK if there are no NDA reservations.

Files can be converted to XML or even TTX before handout.

OmegaT can handle TTX, but it needs pre-translated files (copy source to target).

Wordfast Anywhere Aug 18, 2013

I thought of Wordfast Anywhere version, but i am yet to explore its features compatible with my project. I am afraid OmegaT will include file conversions so i better not try it out. But I welcome other better ideas

Only translate new content with Heartsome Aug 23, 2013

You can lock all repetitions throughout whole projects and apply translations automatically in Heartsome Translation Studio 8, although it is not an online tool, but it can help you maintain the consistency throughout the project,because duplicate sentence leave locked. Once you finish whole project, you can propagate translations to all duplicate sentence with one click.

Heartsome Translation Studio 8 support Trados files, including TTX, SDLXLIFF files. It can try for 3 months with full features. For your information on this post: http://blog.heartsome.net/product-news/27.html.

Additional SaaS tools Aug 23, 2013

XTM was mentioned as was Wordfast Anywhere. There are additional online SaaS (software as a service) tools that could handle the type of project you describe. Memsource cloud - http://www.memsource.com/ is another option. You can check out information on most CAT Tools and read ProZ.com user reviews of those tools, watch demo videos, see links to free trials and more via ProZ.com's software comparison tool at http://www.proz.com/software-comparison-tool/cat/cat_tools/2
