Introduction to Snowball description:

Snowball is a very different kind of translation memory environment. An engineer and freelance translator, Erich initially developed Snowball for his own full-time translation work, because he was frustrated with other tools and wanted something that worked the way he did.

What really sets Snowball apart is that it tries to be as unobtrusive as possible, protecting the user from unnecessary interactions with the computer and freeing them up to do their creative work. It can be used in either full-sentence or word-by-word mode – the latter enables the database to fill much more quickly with useful translations and is why it's called "Snowball". Both TMX and simple list data can be imported and exported. Snowball is the first step towards the smoother, more intuitive translation tools of the future.
