Hi everybody,
I am looking for a free cat-tool in order to consult my translation memories and my termbases created with trados. I already have a license of trados, but I need an inexpensive cat-tool to use on my netbook just for consultation purposes when I am out of office.
It shouldn't have any limit regarding TM and TB sizes, like Wordfast demo and the like.
Do you know if a such cat-tool exist?
Thank you very much for your help.
Bruno

Xbench or TMLookup May 17, 2016

If all you want to do is consult your translation memories and termbases, Xbench will allow you to do exactly that. There is a free version (the older version), which doesn't handle UTF-8, but if it's just for searching, I doubt this really matters much.

TMLookup will do the same, but with a bit more work maybe for the termbases.

Thank you Michael!
I've just downloaded a free version of Xbench. However, as far as I can see, it is only free of charge for 30 days..then it costs about 120 € per year..

As Michael was saying, the older version (2.9) is free. Try that and see if it works for you. I think it should, even with relatively "big" (as in several hundred MBs) memories.
