Specific clients can have preferences for how certain terms should be translated. It’s easy to keep your translations consistent with Memsource’s integrated terminology management feature.

Terminology databases, or term bases for short, keep track of which terms are preferred and which ones should be avoided at all costs. Real-time checks will help ensure that translators are consistent even when working on large projects.

As you translate, Memsource automatically stores your previous translations in your translation memory. Where possible, it suggests them to keep you from translating the same work twice.

With translation memories, you can not only save time and effort but also keep your work consistent using previously approved translations.

Trusted by Translators

Memsource is a very solid and well-defined CAT tool, and by far the best cloud-based solution I have worked with so far. As a very easy to learn, yet efficient solution, I would recommend it over traditional CAT tools for translators and for projects where an intuitive user interface is key to productivity.

  • What is a CAT tool?

    CAT stands for computer-assisted translation. A CAT tool is software that is specially designed to make it easier to translate using many useful features, such as translation memory (TM), terminology databases, spelling and grammar checkers, and project management software.

  • Why should I use a CAT tool?

    Without a CAT tool, a translator can usually complete about 6 pages, or 1500 words of translation a day. Using a tool like Memsource can easily boost productivity to double or even triple this amount, while at the same time achieving higher quality and greater consistency.

  • Is it easy to move to Memsource from another CAT tool?

    Absolutely. Most translators familiar with other CAT tools take anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours to master Memsource’s intuitive interface. Memsource also supports over 50 different file formats, making it easy to migrate your existing projects.

  • Can I try Memsource for free?

    Yes you can! We offer a one month free trial that lets you explore all features available on our platform. You can watch a demonstration of what makes Memsource the perfect tool for linguists here.
