ATA TEKTalks: Is Wordfast the Right Tool for You?

March 29, 2022

Learn the pros and cons of the top language localization tools to discover which one best fits your needs and goals!

Wordfast is one of the best known platform-independent translation memory tools in the industry, but is it the right one for you? Join us for our first quarterly ATA TEKTalks webinar for an interview with the company’s CEO Yves Champollion. You’ll learn the top three features of Wordfast, how the software can help translators do their best work, what the costs are associated with using the product, whether the program integrates seamlessly with other translation management systems, and more.

What is ATA TEKTalks?

Language technology, or lang tech for short, can feel like a confusing maze, evolving daily. If you’ve ever felt “LOC’d out” of all the excitement—or just overwhelmed—it’s time to grab your compass and assume your place as a tech-savvy linguist!

ATA’s Language Technology Division is pleased to announce TEKTalks, a new quarterly series of webinars. ATA TEKTalks will provide a platform for leading language technology companies to say hello, offer insights, and answer prepared questions relevant to the work of freelancers, language services providers, and in-house translation departments.

Think of ATA TEKTalks as an open exchange of information where language technology companies and their representatives demonstrate how and why their services can improve your return on investment.

This webinar series is organized in collaboration with ATA’s Language Technology Division.

You will learn how to:

  • Understand the pros and cons of leading language localization tools and platforms
  • Identify the questions to ask when looking for the lang tech that will work best for you
  • Decide which component, tool, integration, or brand may be ideal for your needs
  • Find new opportunities to put your language skills to use in ways you have never considered
