Why did we build our own CAT tool

In the video below, Lingo24’s Dave Meikle discusses the reasons behind building our own computer assisted translation tool.

There are various computer system translation tools in the market; you could buy SDL Studio, Trados, all these different tools that are available to you.

However, at Lingo24 we have to deliver quality translation, and stand by that quality.

We get files of weird and wonderful types that we have to filter and get in that tool – that’s how we deliver translations back to our clients.
Having that flexibility to tailor and customise the tool, and make the tool work in a way that you need to deliver high quality translation really helps. Our tool boasts:

• quality checks which we had way before many other people,
• customisable workflow that you can do in a couple of clicks,
• advanced file filter that we’re able to do in the platform or with the help of our File Engineering team.

That’s why we built Lingo24’s own CAT tool and why we’re able to use that to meet some of the scenarios that customers throw at you, that out-of-the-box tools just aren’t able to do.
