(7) Add a CAT tool to your arsenal
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you are on the market for a CAT tool, you get one for free with your Plus subscription: CafeTran Espresso. The latest version of CafeTran Espresso, Acua, was released this year.

Even if you are not currently looking for a new CAT tool, this is a good opportunity to test drive something different to see how it compares to the tools you are currently using, and to add it to your arsenal if it works for you.

(8) Smart translators and interpreters are wearing sunglasses
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The future looks bright for a certain type of translator, interpreter, or anyone providing language services.

These are the language professionals who are able to adapt to the changes that affect us all in general, and the changes that affect how things work in the industry. Some of these changes are related to globalization, some are tech-based, others have to do with how we have come to expect a service to be delivered, in terms of time, cost, and quality, and very often without even having met the person or persons providing the service.
