    Good background on CATOct 4, 2011

    Paolo did a very good job of explaining the "how" of how CAT tools "think and work". At times I found his explanations a bit slow and cumbersome. I would have appreciated a little more streamlined approach with a bit more time dedicated to actually manipulating text in WORDFAST.
