CAT tool used as a basis for this courseOct 24, 2013

Hello Anne-Charlotte,
Is there a specific CAT tool that you use as a basis in the course above? I personally use both WFC and WFP - will the features you explain be applicable to those tools?
Thank you.
Best regards,

Dear Susanna,

Thank you for your message.

The aim of the course is to present an approach and not to teach how to use one tool in particular. However a few tips and tricks will be given concerning specific tools. It is important to remember that a 60 minutes presentation can only give an overview and explain the possibilities and oportunities of such tools but cannot be exhaustive.

Hope this helps icon_wink.gif

Best regards,

Anne-Charlotte icon_wink.gif
