Although I have been a translator for around 8 years I do not have a CAT tool with a Memory. Now as I have a little more work than before I would like to purchase one, but it has to be something easy to use, for someone that has never used one before. It has to have Memory, it should be able to translate from one language to another and it should not be expensive, TRADOS in India costs a lot, at present I cannot afford that.

Could someone help me out.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you and a good weekend to you all

Try WordFast for a Translation Memory tool! Aug 23, 2003

You can try the fully working demo free o f cost by downloading it from If you decide to buy it, a license is going to cost you only EUR 90, taking into acount that you live in a third-world country, just as I do.

Believe me, it is easier to learn and a lot more cost-effective that the one you mention!
