The technological platform under development is designed for professional translators (both freelancers and corporate employees), amateur translators, future translators currently studying at universities, Open Source (open software) and crowdsourcing projects.
Our project mission is to develop a new-generation technological platform to help automate translators' work. Morphological search through substantial Translation Memory databases is at the heart of the project, alongside a possibility to use TMs in a cloud with distributive simultaneous performance potential for of a large number of users.
“We realized our scientific groundwork on Translation Memory search technologies may shape a new-generation TM with certain additional research and development, which, in turn, could bring about a tremendous improvement in translations and in the whole sector,” says Vladimir Gusakov. “The CAT cloud system, ranked over comparable solutions in quite a number of parameters, will become one of our brand-new applications.”
The final product will help considerably improve translator performance and reduce costs when it comes to translating large volumes of documents.
