What is a CAT Tool?
CAT (Computer-assisted translation) does not refer to machine translation, but to translation done by human translators. It assists the translator in the translation processes involving correct use of terminology, maintaining consistency and proofreading, while providing quality assurance. It gives the translator the possibility to create translation memories, and term bases which can be used later on as reference material ensuring consistency in the usage of certain terms.
NPLtranslation uses several tools according to our customers’ requirements and/or depending on the file format of the source document, like Word, Excel, Pdf or InDesign.
