Another great free tool Sep 30, 2014

The presentation was very helpful. Thank you!

It's useful for specialized translations, to gather a lot of texts of a specific topic and see with the glimpse of an eye how one term/sentence has been translated/written before. One example could be recipes: you download 500 of them from the internet (for example) and then you can do a quick search and see how frequent one combination of words

That was really interesting and helpful! Above all because I use Linux and it's always difficult to find tools that work well!

Many thanks again!

Happy Translators Day!

I would like to suggest another software for storing passwords, a true life-saver: KeePass 2. It's a great software that you can handle like a file, which means that you can copy it into your USB stick and bring it with you wherever you go. It can easily store usernames, passwords, URLs, and any other notes, and generate passwords for you. All you need is one password to open it.
