What do I need a CAT tool for?

To fit your work style to the IT age, and also to...

  • be able to accept the orders that request to have a "CAT tool or translation memory".
  • not to repeat again and again the same work.
  • work faster, more efficiently, and with better results.
  • remain in a market that requires constant evolution.
  • take advantage of new technologies in the field of the translation.

Learn to use Wordfast, a powerful CAT tool, integrated in Microsoft Word.

Why Wordfast Classic?

Wordfast Classic is a set of macros, written in Visual Basic and saved as a simple template to be used within Microsoft Word. So, although Microsoft Office is needed to install and use Wordfast, the translator doesn't have to learn a totally new working environment because the whole translation process takes place within Word. Thanks to this feature, Wordfast becomes a really easy and "user-friendly" program. It can be installed either in Windows, or in Mac, providing that we have a suitable version of Word.

Is this course for me?

Well, let's see...

  • As a translator, I need to keep my knowledge, my linguistic skills and abilities to manage the new technologies up to date, but I never have enough time to take part in a face-to-face course.
  • It is obvious that if I don't update my knowledge, I run the risk of disappearing from the translation market, because my training as a professional, in comparison with the translators who use the CAT tools, will not be enough.
  • My language skills are good, but I'm really bad at computers... However, I manage quite well with Word...

If any of these sentences above sounds familiar to you... don't hesitate - this course IS for you!
