MateCat Tool


MateCat is an enterprise-level, web-based CAT tool (Federico et al., 2014) designed to make post-editing and outsourcing easy and to provide a complete set of features to manage and monitor translation projects.

Thanks to the integration of the largest collaborative translation memory and statistical machine translation (SMT), users will likely get significantly more matches than with other CAT tools and translate faster.

MateCat Tool provides special support for glossary, concordances, and user-adaptive SMT.

The development of MateCat Tool was partially supported by the EC-funded project MateCat (ICT-2011.4.2-287688).
