What are CAT tools and how can they help reduce costs?
Computer-assisted translation tools aid translators and other linguists in storing, editing and managing translations.
It starts with the source file imported into the CAT tool, followed by automatic analysis and the translation memory attached to the project.
When the entire source file has been translated, the target text is saved in the translation memory and the target file is exported from the CAT in the same format as the source file.
CAT tools ensure a consistent quality of translations and reduce costs by reusing segments that are already in the translation memory.
