Computer Assisted Translation Tools

Automation Tools


Our expertise in the use of CAT tools brings significant time and cost saving for all.

The proficient use of CAT tools, combined with custom glossaries and tailored terminology management, help us deliver consistent, reliable reading across documents.

CAT Server solutions helps facilitate communication between our clients and our teams of translators, editors and In-House linguists.

Investing in better technology allows us greater flexibility when editing and updating projects. As a result, this technology can help speed up the time of delivery of your documents, without compromising on quality.

Once one of our expert translators and editors have finished working on your texts, your documents are read, double checked, corrected, updated and then finalized by our in-house linguists.

All documents are delivered in your preferred format, be it a text file, an Excel file, a PO file or an Xliff.
