The Cost-Effective Advantages of CAT Tools

CAT tools offer a cost-efficient solution for managing translation budgets without compromising quality, allowing companies to reduce unnecessary expenses by avoiding duplication and rework.

Making sure the translation agency you work with is proficient in CAT tool use ensures fast delivery times of large volumes of highly technical content.

What are CAT tools?

Computer-Assisted Translation (CAT) tools are software designed to assist translators in achieving consistency by automating repetitive tasks.

  • CAT tools divide the source text into segments (words, sentences, or paragraphs).
  • The translator enters their translation for each segment, which is then stored in a centralized database known as a translation memory.
  • Whenever a similar segment appears, the CAT tool suggests the previously translated content from the translation memory.

CAT tools also offer additional functionalities, including support for various file types, advanced project management capabilities, and quality assurance checks to identify errors, inconsistencies, and formatting issues.

CAT Tools in Translation: Enhancing Accuracy and Productivity

CAT tools provide significant cost savings by leveraging existing translated content and reducing duplication. Partnering with a translation agency proficient in CAT tool use ensures faster project delivery times without compromising quality.

  • CAT tools reduce human error by automating repetitive tasks and minimizing the need for revisions.
  • They enable faster turnaround times for urgent translation needs.
  • CAT tools can handle various file formats, eliminating additional costs for manual file preparation or conversion.
  • Translation providers with expertise in CAT tools guarantee adherence to industry standards and quality control measures.
  • CAT tools ensure consistency in style, terminology, and brand voice throughout translations.

Proficient use of CAT tools is a must for any translation agency that aims to provide customized solutions to complex projects with technical terminology. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you’d like to know more about how we incorporate this technology into our workflow.
