Would recommend it
I worked on a contract of 9 months for Toys"R"Us Canada and, in the Translation department, we were using it and I learned really fast to use it. You can work directly on Ms Word and other files so it's really helpful. You can align bilingual texts for TM also. I did not experienced any crash too. Only thing, I think it's the most expensive on the market.

Excellent online tool with a good team
I am using this tool since 2009 on a daily basis. The big advantage is that you are working in real time with your client or the project manager. The tool is free to use for the translator. It is also very intuitive and I have never lost data. The tags are extremely easy to implement. You can also use the tool offline, of course. I highly recommend it for building a long term relationship (yes!) with a client. Once the system is running, it is a breeze to use.

Product description MultiTrans Prism Freelance provides access to the essential functionalities for a freelance translator to work locally (not connected to a corporate network domain). This stand-alone edition of MultiTrans Prism includes the ability to build and import TextBase Translation Memories and TermBases of limited sizes. It also gives you the ability to use the fully interactive Translation Agent within Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, and WordPerfect. The Translation Agent enables users to interactively or automatically replace paragraphs, segments (exact & fuzzy matches), sub-segments and terms while they work with their preferred editor. Further Advanced Leveraging TM (ALTM) technology provides sub segment matching, auto-alignment, and the context for all matches found. It also comes with our XLIFF Editor, which does everything the Translation Agent does but extends your ability to work on tagged format files such as XML, HTML, MSOffice 2007 and 2010, FrameMaker and InDesign. The XLIFF Editor also has integrated QA tools to check for translation completeness and terminology consistency.

The Freelance license includes a training session on the Web and a reduced price for ongoing support.
Assisted translations are a way to empower people handling translations in companies by leading them through transparent processes within software that is designed for in-house translation. Years of working with translation led us to design Text United: a proven, industry-standard suite of tools for professionals and beginners. Today, in response to a growing demand, we’re taking translation to another level and introducing the first-ever translation process that brings your business directly to international customers. We have built a first-of-its-kind translation platform, equipped with every tool a translator and his client may need, without the hassle of complex, agency-based workflows. Our customers invite each other to the platform, take advantage of free services and have a strong sense of control over the translation of their content. We take businesses abroad through a different approach to translation. Text United is powered by a cloud-based translation memory technology, which prevents translators from translating a sentence twice, gets workflows out of the way and focuses on what really matters: quality, controlled, international content.
