Wordfast Oct 12, 2002

Theh first one that comes to my mind is the CAT tool, Wordfast. I hope this is the kind of thing you were referring to.

Good luck!


A universal & open translation tool

Wordfast is a Translation Memory engine available for Microsoft Word on PC and Mac (see supported platforms).

Wordfast offers a transparent, open format  for all its data, but maintains direct compatibility with Trados 2, 3 & 5 (TM exchange, MultiTerm glossaries, same segmentation), TMX and IBM TM. Excel, PowerPoint, Access files but also tagged documents can be translated. Wordfast connects to MT packages like PowerTranslator™, Systran™, Reverso™ etc.

Although Wordfast is essentially a translator\'s tool, it easily integrates in the workflow of translation agencies & large accounts. All this power is packed in a single, compact Word™ template; data can be shared over a lan or over the web.

Wordfast downloads in 2 minutes at 56Kbps (file size: 520 Kb). Registration is free at this time and allows you to use Wordfast on your current Microsoft Word installation.

The current version is 3.35x, dated 16 September 2002.

looking for what kind of tools Oct 13, 2002

Sure, there is a great number of tools, but what actually you are looking for? CAT tools, pdf converters, dictionaries, glossary builders, or something else? Search the forums first, may be you could find something worth trying, or surf in the internet, simply asking translation tool, cat tools, etc. And don\'t forget to inform us about the new tools that you will find.

Due mainly to legal wrangles, it\'s impossible to give reliable information on Wordfast pricing at this time, as the situation is changing almost daily! A commercial version was recently launched (for 150 or 50 Euro, depending upon the purchaser\'s location), but older, free versions are still available. Check out the Wordfast forum for the latest information.
