I’ve been trying to figure out which CAT tool to pick and stay with, not an easy choice as there are so many to choose from. For the moment, I tend to use Wordfast Anywhere, but it has limitations.
The big industry standard tools like TRADOS are super expensive and somewhat unwieldy, and are absolutely tied to Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office for Windows. Being an avid Mac OS X user, I would prefer a tool that I can use on *any* OS platform or device, including my iPad, or perhaps in a huge bind, a browser on my Android phone…or…don’t laugh!… on the GoogleTV web browser!
During my search far and wide, I came across Wordbee, a relative newcomer. I think I’m going to give it a try. It is open standards compatible, compatible with TRADOS TM’s, so might work.
If you are a translator (or translation agency), take a look at Wordbee! No huge upfront costs, and just a basic monthly subscription based on your estimated word count for the month, starting at just about $8 a month!
And it’s from Luxembourg!! :>
Looks promising. Handles translation tasks as well as administrative stuff like billing etc.
