There are many areas, however, where CAT tools fall short, from cleaning tags and fixing formatting issues in the source document to making sure that the final translation is well formatted and easy to read.

You will learn how these programs can increase your productivity, improve your efficiency, and assist in producing a final professional translation that will gain you repeat business!

You will learn how to:

  1. Save time and avoid errors with an efficient workflow prep of source documents before translation
  2. Translate parts of a Word document in a CAT tool, ignoring text marked as non-translatable
  3. Produce a dual language final Word document quickly
  4. Prevent common formatting issues in translated documents using checklists and tools
  5. Improve and polish the look and feel of a final document in Word, including use of correction lists
