Translation tools

Translation memories
www.translation-bookmarking.com

(e-book extract) Aside from the feature that recovers existing translations, translation memory tools also help to ensure consistency within a given text, between different translation projects and also between translators and even revisers. It is generally possible for translators to export the contents of their translation memory databases in order to share them and ensure […]

Professional-Quality Translation at Light Speed: Why Voice Recognition May Well be the Most Disruptive Translation Technology You’ve Never Heard of.

I’m sort of amazed translators working into English today still type out their translations on keyboards. Hunched over for endless hours at a time, day after day, banging away on an electronic version of a 19th century invention – a barely improved technology from Gutenberg’s movable type of the 15th century – all the while […]

Translate Everything to Streamline Workflows

Post-Processing of Machine Translations, the New Money Maker of “the Translation Industry”

How Translators Can Assess Post-Editing MT Opportunities
