ApSIC Xbench What is it? A well-known free software tool for Multisource Reference Management and Quality Assurance. Becoming a “must-know” for translators and LSPs. Processes an extensive list of bilingual formats (TMs, glossaries, translation files, etc.) It is an independent program that launches with a keystroke after selecting text in another program. http://www.apsic.com/es/products_xbench.html
ApSIC Xbench Main advantages Total control over translation reference. Stand-alone software enhancing any CAT tool. Preset QA, and customized QA (i.e. checklists). Free of charge. http://www.apsic.com/es/products_xbench.html
ApSIC Xbench Possible disadvantages Requires a lot of CPU/RAM resources (depending on the quantity of data). Not for every field of specialization. http://www.apsic.com/es/products_xbench.html
LF Aligner“The Ultimate Aligner” LF Aligner helps translators to create translation memories from earlier translations or other bilingual texts. Contrary to CAT tool aligners, it automates the process thanks to Hunalign, an automatic sentence aligning algorithm. Dramatically speeds up the verification of segments. http://sourceforge.net/projects/aligner/
