In this article, we will present the translation technology tools that are a MUST in the translation and localization process…
Translation Management Systems
Running multiple projects at once and struggling to keep them organized? I can imagine you’re looking a lot like this right now:

Computer-Aided Translation (CAT Software)
Quality Assurance Tool
At the end of the day, we all want to produce a translation that is of top quality. While the translator may be self-assured and convinced that their work is accurate, it’s still a good idea to have the text either:
