Working with Text United Software

2016-11-10

It is frequently updated, one does not have to load to the PC a lot of volume, as everything is stored in their server, there is a bright project management and clients always get the best quality feasible.

Pros

Simple to handle, good terminology management, - and the client can see the progress (if wished) and give terminology advice if needed.

Cons

No cons available, as it is state of the art.

Rachael Light

Excellent system. We are very satisfied with the product and level of customer service.

2018-05-24

The system is user friendly and allows us to work with our own team of global translators in multiple languages.

Pros

There are excellent features including a translation memory which automatically completes words which have been previously translated and a reviewer function which allows all translations to be checked.

Cons

The only improvement i can see which could be made would be the introduction of a spell check function.

Great software, essential for bigger translation projects

2016-11-15

It ensures consistency and quality, especially for bigger projects with several translators working together. The interface is similar to other CAT tools, so there's virtually no learning curve.

Pros

Easy to use, ensures quality and consistency, constant support.

Cons

I wish it was more customizable.

Wonderful tool for MT

2020-03-25

I also like the interface and multiple features such as being able to search for terms in the text and correct mistakes automatically when desired.

Pros

I liked that it is very similar to various CAT tools, the possibility to use both online interface and desktop app and I was very pleasantly suprised it was MT of great quality.

Cons

I hoped there would be a mobile app sooner and the process of creating invoices is somehow too complicated and could be automatical.

Translators love this tool

2016-11-11

The best part: multiple translators can work on an urgent project without compromising consistency -- because it is cloud based, content from multiple translators working simultaneously on a project syncs automatically. The result is not only increased productivity, but also to perfect consistency.

Pros

Ease use, functionality, collaboration due to cloud technology

Cons

Like any cloud-based service, there is time spent waiting on data to save to the server.

Practical CAT Tool

2020-04-02

It's really fast for an online CAT tool (which can also be used in offline mode). I have never experienced any hiccups or crashes, which happen way too often when I use Trados Studio, for example.

Pros

Besides being a fully-featured and fast CAT tool, I love the fact that it keeps a record of all the projects I have done and also their budgets.

Cons

It would have been nice if I it offered you the ability to import your own term bases.

Brilliant translation tool for our Angular 2 site

2017-01-29

Our company website is built in Angular 2, and we needed to translate it into Chinese and English.

Pros

Works great with Angular 2 Dictionary makes sure that translations from previous projects are matched automatically.

Cons

The desktop tool is a little bit hard to understand at first sight, but after a Skype chat with their support it made sense.

A great cloud CAT tool

There are some minor drawbacks in the user interface (e. g. you can't remap the shortcuts or need to confirm each repetition manually), but they don't bother the user much.

Nice and easy solution for translators

2020-04-01

Pros

It is very easy to use and has a very nice design.

Cons

When translating, it doesn't add segments to TM when the segments haven't been approved by a PM. That repeats effort on translators.
