We have just launched a new web-based Computer Aided Translation (CAT) / Post-Editing tool

ONLINE CATALOG (http://santanu.appling.uni-saarland.de/CATaLog/)

  • This is a new web-based post-editing tool, enhanced with a number of new features.
  • It can be used as a common CAT tool but also for post-editing TM segments or MT output.
  • The tool provides a complete set of log information currently not available in most CAT tools.
  • This tool is also convenient for translation process research.
