Together with you we develop best practices and processes around your CAT tool, like

  • data exchange through XLIFF files or tables,
  • setup of QA checks or translation helpers like conversions of measurements or
  • preparation steps for different file formats that need their own specific filter settings.


We will take a look a the automation that your CAT tool offers and what connectors to other systems, like project management systems might be available.

Change in Tools / Transfer of Legacy Data

When moving from one tool to another, exporting and importing translation memories is only one step. There are many settings that should be checked and information that needs to be transfered to your new tool. Another question is how to transfer legacy data without too much manual effort. Or maybe it is time to think about setting up fresh, new databases.

Terminology Management

Together we will find out how much and what kind of terminology work is managable for you as terminology work can easily and quickly grow into a bigger project. And usually there are no or only little human resources available. We can help you determine where to start and what to do so that the project does not get too big or too costly.

Evaluation of Translation Tools

If you ask me "What is the best tool?" I will have to ask you "What is important to you?”. I can help you to decide on a selection of translation tools that could meet your requirements and can assist your evaluation of processes and functionalities.

Comparison of CAT tool functionalities

A comparison of functionalites in CAT tools and terminology management tools that could be important for you. The results could be the basis for deciding for one or the other tool. Or, if you are using several tools already, it can help to find the right tool for a given task.

Introduction of a CAT Tool

If you are introducing a CAT tool, training sessions can help you to define your processes and/or give individual assistance to the users so that they can implement the tool quickly and effectively at the workplace.
