Hi all,

I work in a customer service department as a language coordinator (translator).

I respond the mails, questions from client in an another language and I translate also the company documents, website etc.

I personally have Trados 2017 on my PC but I normally use the company computer that doesn't have any CAT Tools.


What kind of system solutions (CAT Tool or an another program) would you recommend me to work efficient in such a department?

Many thanks in advance.

Best regards,
Akije

You know Trados, you use Trados, it makes sense that your company buy you a Trados license, together with a bit of intermediate or advanced training if needed.

Thanks for your advice Sep 9, 2017

Thanks Philippe, for your prompt answer.

Do you have some ideas how I can utilize Trados together with Outlook or with an another server based Mail program?

Best regards,

Not sure about Trados, but you can use CafeTran's Clipboard workflow for this:

Monolingual Sep 22, 2017

Thanks for your reply and sorry for my late reply...

Could you tell me what are benefits of CafeTrans compared with Trados?

I'm considering that Google Translator Toolkit could be also a solution as it is a free software.

Actually, I'd like to find also a solution for the monolingual correspondences (e.g. email writing without source text).
Currently I'm saving all texts in a word file and using the search function of Word.

Best regards,
Akije

Well, in this regard; the clipboard workflow. Just put any text that you want to translate on the system clipboard and translate it.

For your monolingual stuff, you might want to have a look at MindReader: https://www.star-group.net/en/products/e-mail-assistance.html

Thanks! Oct 3, 2017

Thanks for your reply!

"MindReader" seems to me the best solution.

About CafeTran, I have to try the "clipboard" function.

I'm very thankful for your advice.

Best regards,
Akira
