Using computer-assisted translation (CAT) tools

At text&form, we’re CAT tool-agnostic, meaning we use all of the most widely used tools in the market, including SDL Trados Studio, Across, Memsource, memoQ and SDL Passolo.

But our technologies go beyond that and include the following solutions for optimizing translation workflows:

  • Translation memory (TM) server technology to help us translate large volumes of texts within a short time
  • A browser-based CAT integration solution that connects with our project management tool for the translation of small bits into many languages
  • End-to-end workflow integration with authoring tools such as SCHEMA ST4, Drupal, and others

The future has always been now
at text&form, …

… because we know how to integrate technology
into our translation processes
to exceed our clients’ needs.

Other translation tools
that speed up your translation projects

Constantly striving to improve workflows and streamline processes, we have repeatedly come up against the narrow limits of existing software solutions in our more than 20 years of company history. So we created our own solutions that increase the efficiency of translation projects, thereby saving you both time and money.

tf-term

More than a simple glossary, tf-term can be used by anyone in your company to define, manage, and publish corporate terminology in just a few clicks. Worldwide and in any language. tf-term will extract a list of potential terms for its database, right down to their grammatical base form. You then select which terms to include and exclude and make this database available to any users who need access to it.

tf-connect

tf-connect connects your content authoring system with our translation management systems, thereby eliminating tedious manual exporting, sending, and importing content during the translation process. Using this tool greatly reduces errors that can crop up in a manual process. It also integrates with our customer portal so you can monitor the progress of your projects.

tf-externalize for SAP® Translation Hub

tf-externalize taps into the vast archive of translations from SAP and retrieves translations from SAP Translation Hub for your texts. These translations are then reviewed and adapted by our translators to ensure that they match the context of your specific custom developments.

Customizing Delta Translation Manager for SAP Translation

When translating entries in customizing tables, it can be difficult to quickly identify which tables you need to translate. On top of that, you have to figure out which entries in those tables were created by you, and which ones were delivered by SAP. CDTM is an SAP add-on that solves this problem and enables a transparent and sustainable translation workflow.
