I receive most of my translation material from clients by fax, even though I prefer e-mail. Whatever the reason, are CAT tools in general (or any in particular), capable of storing such documents?

Not sure if I understand your question... Dec 20, 2003

...are you really talking about storage here, or are you looking for ways to process faxes etc. via a CAT tool?

I'm moving the thread to General Tech Support.

Best regards, Ralf

It is possible, but... Dec 20, 2003

if I understood your question you want to know if there is a way of processing faxes with a CAT tool.....not that easy. If the quality of the fax is very good you could try to a Text recognition software (OCR) to transform the fax (ups you have to scan it) into lets say a word doc.

What you need is a lot of luck, because quality of most faxes is very bad and then you need a good scan and a good OCR software.......

My advice: try to get your clients to send you the document per email (be sure they dont send them as attached pictures).

Good Luck,
