Are there plans to bring the CatTools page and CatFight feature back? I really hope so.

In recent days, there have been several queries on the forums about CAT tools (comparison, which one to buy, etc) and I think that being able to readily find detailed information about CAT tools would be of great benefit to ProZ users and members.

This kind of information is not only useful for newbies, but for translators who are thinking about upgrading, or switching to a new tool. Yes, this subject has been discussed a lot, but these tools are constantly evolving and it is not easy to find objective, updated information. Searching forums for past discussions can be helpful, but doesn't bring up an easy-to-read comparison of the options available.

I was recently searching for information about alternate CAT tools, and was wondering what tools were available that would treat my documents in a certain specific way. I eventually found the CatFight "under reconstruction" page, and was disappointed to see that the two tools I wanted to compare were not even listed there.

Comparison between CAT tools Feb 6, 2008

In the meantime, you can find a very comprehensive listing of CAT tools here, which at least compares the file formats they handle, operating systems they can run on, price, and type of license.
