Smartcat decided to create an open access translation memory based on the materials about the coronavirus
The same goes for Smartcat. It has become complicated these days to write a post without mentioning the name of this ill-fated virus.
Taking into account the numerous texts about the coronavirus, epidemics, etc. being hastily translated in all language directions, Smartcat decided to do a good deed collecting them in a translation memory open to general use—CovidTM, and invites all translation companies to participate in its filling. Once the appropriate materials appear, it will be uploaded as an open access multilingual TMX file. Smartcat promises to fill it with new translations regularly.
In the time of the pandemic, many developers are trying to help their clients
Starting from April 1 and version 9.3.5, QA Distiller (also known as QAD), a semi-automated translation quality assessment program, has become free. No, it’s not a joke.
QAD is a competitor of Xbench, Verifika, and other similar programs. It has been offered in three versions so far: Freelance, Professional, and Enterprise. Now, there is only one left—Professional,—and you don’t have to pay for it anymore.
