The web-based CASMACAT workbench offers novel types of assistance for human translators, using advanced computer aided translation technology. It is open source and free to use.
Since the project is ongoing, the workbench is currently undergoing heavy development. But already a beta version of the workbench is available with broad capabilities.
The CASMACAT Workbench consists of several components:
- the web server that provides a GUI via a WWW Browser (such as Google Chrome or Firefox)
- a CAT server to provide advanced computer aided translation services
- a machine translation engine that provides basic translation services (currently supporting Moses and Thot)
The workbench is modular, so that you may swap any of these components against your own, or connect to external services.
