The choice of CAT tools for professional translators used to be limited and they tended to be expensive. This is no longer the case and translators can now choose from a variety of tools, including inexpensive ones. This series of five videos covers inexpensive, yet fully-featured CAT tools costing from 0 to 139 euros.
This video is about CafeTran Espresso, an inexpensive (80 euros) tool created by Igor Kmitowski. Like OmegaT, CafeTran is Java-based and as such multi-platform (Windows, Mac, Linux).
The video shows how to create a project, how to open a Word document, translate it and export the translated document.
A new comment on my blog post:
"I’d never used one of these programmes before but thanks to the video it was a piece of cake"
I noticed there’s a link to a very old video I made about CafeTran (in 2012), although a much newer one (June 2015) is available:
It’s partly outdated, since it covers CT 2015, not CT 2016, but it’s definitely more up-to-date than the 2012 video.
