Hello everybody,
I would like to start translating with a CatTool but I have a Mac.

Thank you

You'd might want to have look at CafeTran (www.cafetran.com).

Easy for basic translation tasks on your Mac. A very helpful user forum at: https://cafetran.freshdesk.com/support/discussions/forums/6000132966

It works very well with Mac. You can download it and use it for free to give it a fully functioning try.
Cheers!

omegaT et al. Jun 11

To make the list more complete:

omegaT: http://omegat.org

Fluency Now: https://www.westernstandard.com/Fluency/FluencyNow.aspx

Basically, all these CAT tools are simple for the basic tasks. They differ in speed of development, quality of support and price: omegaT is free, CafeTran is included in the Proz Plus package, that costs an extra 60 $/year when you're already a member (which you are), or €80 per year via www.cafetran.com, or €200,00 once).

Wordfast Pro is €400, Fluency is $9.95/month ($119.40/year), Swordfish is $320.00.

Regularly, there are promotions at Proz's Translator group buying http://www.proz.com/tgb .

Anaphraseus Jun 11

Anaphraseus is an OpenOffice extension. Probably, the simplest CAT tool that one can imagine.

Is it still actively being developed? Does it also work with the latest LibreOffice on Mac?

Not developed but works Jun 11

Anaphraseus is not actively developed but still works at least in LO 5.2.1.1 under Linux, thus, should work under MacOS too.

I'd add a cloud-based CAT tool to the list: Memsource (https://www.memsource.com/).

Your choice (bis) ? Nov 9

Andrea I am in the same situation and I would be extremely curious to know what you went for.

On my experience, I found that Memsource worked very well with Mac.

However the licence belonged to the agency and now that I'm thinking of acquiring one for myself, I'd like to choose a reliable one, compatible with Mac and popular among agencies/clients.
