Summary:See a training session carried out in memoQ, Wordfast Pro 4 and Wordfast Classic, and learn how to start a session, make initial settings and use features like translation memories, glossaries, concordance searches (TM lookup), statistics, and others in each tool.
Description
In this session attendees will have the opportunity to see the same translation session carried out in memoQ, Wordfast Pro 4 and Wordfast Classic. The presenter will compare how the three programs work in terms of how to start a session and make initial settings, and how to use features like translation memories, glossaries, concordance searches (TM lookup), statistics, and others. The main purpose is to help users migrating from one tool to another find how to do what they used to do in the program they used previously. It may also be an opportunity to understand the differences between the tools in order to find out which one better fits one’s own needs and preferences.
Target audience
- Translators deciding which CAT tool to use
- Translators considering migrating to a different tool
Learning objectives
